Jim Boeheim hails UConn’s reported return to Big East

Jim Boeheim

Count one of UConn’s old basketball rivals as excited to see the school return to the Big East.

Reports emerged Saturday morning that the Huskies would be leaving the AAC to return to the Big East, and Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim was pleased with the news.

“Well, it’s great for the school,” Boeheim told Forbes’ Adam Zagoria on Saturday. “It’s a strong league and all their traditional rivals [are in the league]. It’s a great move, couldn’t be better.”

Big East coaches will welcome the competition. It has remained a strong conference with UConn’s absence, but as a traditional conference power with a lot of natural rivals, Boeheim is correct that their return will ultimately be good for the league. Just don’t ask the school’s football coach about things.
