Alex Oriakhi Transferring (?)

43

Kevin Duffy reports that, per UConn Blog Facebook follower Alex Oriakhi Sr., Alex Oriakhi plans to transfer. If UConn remains ineligible for the 2013 NCAA tournament, Oriakhi (the team's lone, rising senior) would be eligible to play next season for a new team as the NCAA waives the normal one-year waiting period for "for student-athletes with remaining eligibility concurrent to the postseason ineligibility of their previous institution." While Duffy's story quotes Oriakhi Sr. exclusively, other beat writers have had difficulty getting confirmation on the news from any other sources. David Borges says Orakhi's mother was surprised by the news, while Ed Daigneault tweeted that UConn officials were unaware as well. [UPDATE] Duffy's report confirmed via CBS. Oriakhi is transferring.

AP details UConn's proposed self-imposed penalties to avoid 2013 tournament ban

3

The AP released a UConn proposal for self-imposed penalties that would take affect if the school is declared eligible for the 2013 NCAA tournament. The NCAA changed tournament eligibility requirements this fall and now require teams to possess a 4-year rolling APR of 900 or a 2-year APR of 930 to be tournament eligible. Currently the 2-year APR score in question would look at academics from the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 school years, and UConn would not achieve the 2-year rolling score of 930 necessary for eligibility. As of now, UConn is on pace for a score better than 930, should the NCAA decide to use the most recent APR data to determine eligibility for the 2013 tournament. The NCAA is currently considering allowing schools to use the more up-to-date data. UPDATE: Borges has President Herbst's statement UPDATE #2: The Courant has the full waiver request in PDF form
