Just as her father, Greg, persevered under the demanding Lute Olson at Iowa – before a pro career took him to the NBA’s Sixers and Kings as well as overseas – Kiah persevered under the demanding Geno Auriemma, played a key reserve role, helped UConn to nat’l titles in 2013, ‘14, ’15 and thrived in the end ... 2014-15: American Athletic Conf.
