Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco spoke at the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce monthly breakfast on Monday morning and was asked about UConn’s hopes of changing the minds of league presidents and being allowed to play in the Big East Tournament this year. His response, relayed from colleague Paul Doyle, who covered the event for us, follows:
“… No, that’s over for this year. They won’t be in this year’s tournament. But we welcome them the following year. … By the way, [president Susan Herbst] wasn’t there when all this happened and they’ve corrected everything. They’ve got a terrific AD [Warde Manuel] now. They’re doing much better [in APR]. It’s one of those things. It happened. It’s something they have to get through.”
Here is Paul’s full story on our website.
