Mailbag 3/11: UConn Cannot Play In Any Postseason Tournaments

Q: Can UConn play in the N.I.T.

Chas Salwierz


A: No, Chas, UConn’s postseason ban is all inclusive. The NIT, and the other postseason tournaments, the CBI and CIT, are all affilaited, sanctioned, in one way another with the NCAA. The Huskies’ season is over.

    Can we have our own tournament and invite all the left out schools…sort of like the teams that are left in what was the Big East.

      Great idea! Except that any team that would participate would probably receive severe penalties from the NCAA. Also, given the number of injured players on the team currently, there’d be no point in playing in such a tournament. And since there’s no point, why risk injuring the healthy players? . . . Now, a pick-up tournament played on a court outside one of the dorms on campus might be a possibility.
