This is the gospel according to Joan Bonvicini: --Positive is good. Negative is bad. --If you can't be confident, at least appear to be confident. --Appearances matter. --Win, whatever it takes. Bonvicini has been brought here to make a dormant thing awaken. She is here to make women's basketball flourish in the desert. She left behind Cal State Long Beach, 12 years of success and scores of disciples. Here, she has created a cautious following.

To the extent that basketball teams may be said to reflect the personalities of their coaches, Joan Bonvicini of Cal State Long Beach and Pat Summitt of Tennessee have created teams in their own images. Bonvicini was raised on basketball as played on the city playgrounds of the East Coast. Her game is fast and furious. Style is important. Summitt was raised on basketball as played in barns and driveways of the deep South. Her game is measured and relentless. Execution is important.
