Breaking: Hearing from source multiple UConn Men's Basketball players and a member of coaching staff tested positive for COVID.
Working to better understand if Xavier and Butler game are in jeopardy under newest COVID Big East policy updates. #UConnNation #UConn


Remember they need 7 player and a coach
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

The NCAA is among the organizations that have spoken to CDC about shortening isolation periods.

Five days and a negative antigen test vs. 10 days would help limit CBB schedule disruptions as omicron cases rise.

to be fair, If the BE can not reschedule the UConn at X game, if it is canceled, then UConn should have to play the second game at Cintas

Interesting from a UConn beat writer.

Hurley says Big East wanted "a ton of information ... we tried, in every way possible, to convince them we were below the threshold of available players."

Some talk that Hurley didn't want to play the X game short-handed. Didn't provide names of those with Covid.

Nothing I despise more than a nice conspiracy theory. However, it does make you pause when it comes from your own beat writer. Say want you want about MY coach, but Steele would never back down from a team, no matter how shorthanded.
