  In the course of commeneting today on The American’s decision to host its first women’s basketball tournament at the Mohegan Sun, Danielle Donehew, associate commissioner of the conference, reiterated the 10-team conference will play an 18-game league schedule in 2013-14. Each team will play the other home and away.

   However, the league has decided not to pair the teams into travel partners for 2014, a move some expected to make things somewhat easier for the student-athletes who will be shuttled as far as Texas and South Florida for games.

  “Distance and location will definitely be taken into consideration as we formulate the schedule,” Donehew said.
