Harry A. Gampel Pavilion (10,167) Home Court

of the

Huskies

A spacious, state-of-the-art building, Harry A. Gampel Pavilion opened in January of 1990 and totals more than 171,000 square feet in the domed area while an additional 39,000 square feet comprise the attached Wolff-Zackin Natatorium (including a 50-meter Olympic size swimming pool). The complex was a $28 million project and measures 320 feet in diameter in the circular domed arena area. The brilliant aluminum dome of the Gampel Pavilion towers more than 130 feet in the air from ground level. Following the 2009 season of volleyball, new scoreboards and video boards were installed, replacing the old boards which were installed in the Fall of 2000. The state-of-the-art video board displays were manufactured by Lighthouse Technologies and are approximately 12 and half feet by 23 feet each, more than two times the size of the former video boards. Each video board carries a pixel pitch of 10mm and contains 270,000 total pixels, drastically enhancing the overall resolution. In addition to the main scoring and video board displays in each endzone, additional statistical information will be provided on separate displays, including individual and team statistics. Message boards were also installed in each of the four corners of Gampel just above the concourse, providing new message center locations to display information to fans. These displays are approximately 7 feet by 20 feet each. The "Alumni Court" main arena floor is constructed with the latest version of spring aire wood. During the summer of 1996, the original capacity of Gampel Pavilion (8,241) was increased with additional seating placed above each of the four entrance quadrants of the structure. That placed the capacity at 10,027, however, renovations to the lower level endzones during the summer and fall of 2002 have added another 140 seats. The current capacity of Gampel Pavilion is 10,167, making the building the largest oncampus arena in New England. In the past 16 seasons, the Connecticut women's volleyball team has compiled an overall record of 163-51 since beginning play in 1993 in Gampel Pavilion. During the 1993, 1994 and 1995 seasons, the Huskies split time between Gampel Pavilion and the Hugh S. Greer Field House. The 1996 season marked the first year that Connecticut volleyball played all its home matches in Gampel Pavilion. Last year, UConn was an even 5-5 on its home court after losing a mere two games on its home court in 2008. The Huskies captured the 2008 UConn Toyota Classic Title and placed second last season. UConn is set to host Brown, Hartford and Southern Illinois for the 2010 edition of its annual tournament at Gampel. Connecticut will play at least 12 matches in front of a home crowd at Gampel Pavilion this year, including BIG EAST matches against Villanova, Louisville, Cincinnati, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Georgetown and South Florida. The team looks to extend its dominance on its home court as the Huskies have enjoyed a .739 (54-19) winning percentage at Gampel in the past six seasons.

Tim O'Brien Associate Head Coach • Sixth Season Springfield 1999 • Springfield 2002

Tim O’Brien returns to UConn volleyball for his sixth season with the program and his third as the Associate Head Coach. O’Brien is the recruiting coordinator for the program, where he continues to make a direct and immediate impact on the program, bringing in outstanding student-athletes who continue to raise the competitive level of the team. The 2010 class will undoubtedly continue a tradition of newcomers leaving their mark on the season after the first three recruiting classes have had a direct part in the Huskies' reaching the post season. With the guidance of O'Brien, Connecticut's Annie Luhrsen was named the 2008 BIG EAST Freshman of the year, marking the fourth-consecutive setter to receive an award from the conference. Luhrsen became the first major award winner for the Huskies since 1995 and was also selected to the all-conference first team, marking the fourth-consecutive season that a UConn setter has been selected to the All-BIG EAST First or Second Team. Bridget Denson-Dorman was named following both the 2006 and 2007 season while Jenny Neelands started the trend in 2005 with a spot on the All-BIG EAST Second Team. Each of his recruiting classes made an immediate impact with the first two, in 2006 and 2007, leading the Huskies to their first BIG EAST Tournament berth in four years. The 2009 class helped to continue that tradition with Samantha Arriaran continuing a tradition of strong setters and Mattison Quayle stepping in as one of the team's strongest attackers. There is little doubt that the 2010 rookie class will do anything other than raise the bar and increase UConn's presence in the BIG EAST.

In addition to the individual accolades student-athletes have received over the past five years, the team's consistent presence in the BIG EAST Tournament show the integral role O'Brien possess with the Connecticut volleyball program. O'Brien is active in organizing the offense as a technical trainer and teacher. He also works on editing video and analyzing statistics using the Data Volley program. "Tim immediately impacted our program when he came here four years ago," said Strauss-O'Brien. "He is an excellent recruiter, trainer and teacher of the game. Tim's successful volleyball background combined with his commitment and dedication to the University of Connecticut creates an influential force daily as we strive to achieve our aspired vision of UConn volleyball." Prior to his arrival in Storrs, O'Brien spent three years at Loyola University in Chicago. As the head women's volleyball coach, O'Brien led Loyola to the NCAA Tournament. Prior to his promotion to head coach, he spent two seasons as an assistant with the women's program and then one as the head coach of the men's program. He guided the Ramblers to a 22-9 overall record, capturing the Horizon League Tournament title in 2004 to earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000. Under the direction of O'Brien, Loyola posted an impressive 67-28 (.705) record over his three-year tenure. He was instrumental in tutoring six different Loyola All-Horizon League players, one, Horizon League Newcomer of the Year and the school's first All-American since 1991. While at the helm of the Rambler's men's volleyball program in 2003, O'Brien achieved a 19-8 overall record. The squad came within one win of a berth to the NCAA Semifinals and finished 11th in the final national rankings. A 1999 graduate of Springfield, O'Brien began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant for two seasons. In those two years, the Pride posted a 57-20 (.740) record, including a 31-7

mark in 2001 en route to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship. O'Brien was a volunteer assistant coach for the Springfield men's volleyball team which won its second-consecutive Division III National Championship in the spring of 2002. At Springfield, O’Brien had a decorated four-year career as a middle blocker/ outside hitter. As a freshman, O’Brien was part of the Pride squad that claimed the No. 1 ranking in the final USA Today/ Mizuno Division III Coaches’ Poll. He helped Springfield capture the Inaugural Molten Division III National Title as a sophomore, serving as team captain during the 1998 and 1999 seasons. A native of New Bedford, Mass., O’Brien graduated from Springfield College with a bachelor’s degree in athletic training in 1999 and received his master’s in athletic administration from Springfield in 2002. O’Brien and Holly Strauss-O’Brien were married May 24, 2008 and now reside in Vernon, Conn.

2010 season outlook

2010 University of Connecticut Volleyball

2010 Season Outlook Four Starters Return • Nine Letterwinners Return The goals of the 2010 Connecticut volleyball team are to move beyond the accomplishments of four-consecutive BIG EAST Tournament berths and achieve a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Behind the return of eight letterwinners, a core of student-athletes whose contributions continue to lift the program to new heights, there is little doubt surrounding the dedication of this group of Huskies. "With a solid core of returning players, we have to be consistent in living and executing our standards and expectations everyday," head coach Holly Strauss-O'Brien said. "When our goal is to try to do our best, when our focus is on preparation and sacrifice and effort- instead of numbers on the scoreboard- we will put ourselves in a winning position." In addition to a wealth of returning talent, those donning blue and white for the first time will be immediately relied upon to provide a spark in the gym. The four new members are set to add greater balance to the attack and provide valuable minutes throughout their respective rookie campaigns. Seniors Lauren Lamberti and Rebecca Murray will lead the transition of old and new players through the 2010 season. Due to a back injury, Lamberti will continue to contribute to the program from the sidelines while Murray looks to continue to lead the Huskies from the floor in her final season. "Berti has been an offensive contributor for us throughout her career," Strauss-O'Brien said. "Unfortunately, she will no longer be able to get those kills for us this season. However, we do look for Berti to contribute to the team through her role as a student assistant." Murray, an All-BIG EAST Second Team Honoree in 2009, is coming off the best statistical season of her career. Her powerful presence on the court will be invaluable as the Huskies look to fill gaps left by graduation. A stronger, more experienced team will take the floor in the fall after using a successful spring season to heal, learn and grow together as a group. With expectations and goals set high, the 2010 Huskies will need to hit the ground running to compete against a series of strong competitors both non-conference and in the BIG EAST.

we need Allie to be a terminator." Broadwater will undoubtedly compete for more playing time with the experience and a solid spring season where she focused on preparing herself for the demands of BIG EAST volleyball. "Cayla made significant advancements in the weight room this past spring and on the volleyball court," Strauss-O'Brien said. "She has become a versatile attacker both in the middle and on the right pin. We look for Cayla to be a major terminator for us this season." While a wealth of experience in the middle is key, youthful exuberance and willingness to learn and adapt, will certainly be part of the Huskies game this season. Both Billhardt and Freeman will challenge for playing time immediately upon arrival in Harry A. Gampel Pavilion with each bringing everything to the court. The lone native of Connecticut on the roster, Billhardt arrives in Storrs with high expectations as she is quite used to winning. She helped Darien to four-consecutive state championship titles and was a two-time All-Connecticut and All-Fairfield County herself. "Colby is a physical and athletic player," Strauss-O'Brien said.

"Her passion for the game and pride to be a UConn Husky is contagious to those around her." Murray will mentor a youthful group of middle blockers and Freeman is also used to winning, playing an instrumental part hitters while spending time on the outside in her senior season. in Cape Henry's back-to-back sweeps of regular season, conferSophomore Cayla Broadwater and junior Allison Nickel will lead freshmen Colby Billhardt, Morgan Freeman and Jackie Wattles in the ence and state championship titles. A native of Virginia Beach, Va., Freeman captured the 2009 Division II State and TCIS Conference transition of playing at the collegiate level. Among the program's most successful blockers, Murray has a 0.94 Player of Year honors. "Morgan is a dynamic athlete who can block and terminate, block per set career average entering her final season. She totaled Strauss-O'Brien said.

Last season's Most Improved Player of the Year, Mattison Quayle returns to the Huskies for her second season after a spring-season torn meniscus has completely healed. Quayle made an immediate impact as a rookie, averaging 2.23 kills per set while contributing 1.59 digs per set. She made 30 starts, playing in all 31 games. Outside/Right Side Hitters “We are excited to see Matti healthy again and put her match Arguably the spot on the court where Connecticut possesses the most amount of both depth and experience, a trio of student-athletes experience to use this season," Strauss-O'Brien said.

With All-BIG EAST Second Team honors in tow, Murray will see significant time on the outside and will use a career 2.51 kill per set One of the Top 20 Canadian Prospects will take the floor as a rookie with Connecticut and compete for time on the floor as an average to her advantage. "Becca has invested her heart, sweat, and tears into this program outside hitter. Julia Hamer hails from the north where she was the 2009 Halton Female All-Star of the Year and placed fourth with the since her freshman year," Strauss-O'Brien. "She has developed a National Team in the Challenge Cup and in the 2008 Junior Olympics. great overall game throughout the past few years and is hungry to take this program to a place it has never gone before, NCAA tourna- "Julia is personality, determination and a lot of heart and that is evident in her style of play and her great potential," Strauss-O'Brien ment.

That overall game, led to a career-best three double-doubles throughout the 2009 season and a 1.36 dig per set clip.

"Jordan has become a more physical and cerebral player," "As a setter, Keeley delivers a smooth ball and has a good feel Strauss-O'Brien said.

We need Jordan to be consistently aggressive and Angela Roidt, a transfer from Youngstown State University where relentless everyday." she earned a spot on the Horizon League All-Newcomer Team, will direct the Connecticut offense. "Roidt leads through her work ethic and passion to compete," Strauss-O'Brien said. "Angie's athleticism combined with her instincts make her a reliable and steady setter for us this season." Her reliable play saw her average 9.78 assists per set at Youngstown and post an assist average that ranked 11th on the alltime list.

Defensive Specialist/Libero Expectations are high for Kelsey Maving with the graduation of Connecticut's career leader in digs, Jessica Isaac, the libero position is Maving's to control. "I think Kelsey is eager and ready to compete again. Kelsey is a tenacious and fiery competitor," Strauss-O'Brien said. "She will control our serve receive and defense this season in the libero position. I believe Maves has the ability to be one of the best libero’s in the conference. We need Kelsey to stay healthy and take on a greater leadership role for us this season." Hampered by a knee injury for much of her rookie season, Maving averaged just under three digs per set as a defensive specialist. She led the Huskies in digs for the first four matches of the season, including a season-high 33 against UC Irvine. Maving's ability to lead and dictate the pace of play will be invaluable elements to the Connecticut defense in 2010. Abram will also be an important element at defensive specialist, as she will compete for playing time here as well, bringing an invaluable playing experience to the court. "In addition to her setting, she is an asset from the service line, a steady defensive specialist and will compete for both of those positions," Strauss-O'Brien said.

2009 Season review

2010 University of Connecticut Volleyball

2009 Season Review 14-17 Overall Record • 7-7 BIG EAST Record For the fourth-consecutive season, the University of Connecticut volleyball team earned a berth in the BIG EAST Tournament after concluding the season with an even 7-7 mark in conference play. Rebecca Murray was named to the All-BIG EAST Second-Team for the first time in her career and extended the Huskies’ streak of post-season accolades. There has been a UConn player on the second-team for the past five seasons, making Murray the sixth student-athlete selected to either the first or second team with head coach Holly Strauss O’Brien at the helm of the program. Murray paced the Huskies with a 2.65 kill per set average and increased her presence among the UConn attack averaging over three-kills per set (3.02) in BIG EAST play. She also led the team with 115 total blocks, including a team-best 25 solo stops. Murray was productive from the service line as well, contributing a team-best 36 aces. An all-court player, Murray averaged 1.39 digs per set and recorded three double-doubles throughout the 2009 campaign. Joining her among the team’s leading attackers were Chauntay Mickens, Jordan Kirk and then-freshman Mattison Quayle. Each averaged above two-kills per set and were significant contributors to one of the most balanced attacks in the BIG EAST conference. Both Mickens and Murray finished the year with above .200 hitting-percentages in an offense directed by Samantha Arriaran. In her first season with the team, Arriaran averaged 9.06 assists per set while remaining a defensive option, averaging twodigs per set at season’s end. She recorded 10 double-doubles in her first season with the Huskies.

work, she aided the offense with 29 service aces. Jessica Isaac maintained her defensive mindset in her final season as the team’s starting libero. She averaged 4.14 digs per set overall and was among the conference leaders with 5.31 digs per set in BIG EAST play. Just past the midway point of the season, Isaac became the all-time career leader in digs surpassing the 1,000 dig plateau against Rhode Island at the Boston College Tournament in mid-November. Isaac concluded her four-year career with 2,064 digs, recording double-figures in digs in 26 of 31 matches as a senior. She was acknowledged as the team’s Defensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player of the Year at the team banquet in April. Although Isaac’s presence on the back row will be missed, Kelsey Maving had a rookie season that certainly laid the groundwork for a stellar sophomore campaign. Maving served as a defense specialist and posted a career-high of 33 digs early in the season. She averaged just under three digs (2.92) when the Huskies' season ended in a quarterfinal loss to Cincinnati in the BIG EAST Tournament. As the No. 7 seed, Connecticut denied the Bearcats a sweep in its 3-1 win over the Huskies. It was the first time the Huskies had won a set since their first trip to the BIG EAST Tournament during Strauss-O’Brien’s tenure. The bitter end to UConn’s 2009 campaign stays with the nine returners for the upcoming season. The road that led the team to its fourth-consecutive BIG EAST Tournament was a tumultuous one, starting the season on the west coast at the Nevada Marriott Courtyard/Fairfield Invitational. In three of the four matches played in late August to start the season, the Huskies faced 2008 NCAA Tournament participants as well as squads ranked among the American Volleyball Coaches’ Associations’ Preseason Top 25. Twice the Huskies forced five-sets in losses to Nevada and UC Irvine. UConn opened the season with a 3-1 loss to St. Mary’s (Calif.) and ended the three-day tournament with a three-set loss at the hands of California. Although the results were not there, the Huskies played solidly and Murray was awarded a spot on the all-tournament team. After the west coast trip, the Huskies hosted their own UConn Toyota Classic, welcoming New Hampshire, Texas Christian and Long Island to Harry A. Gampel Pavilion. Isaac and Kirk both earned all-tournament honors at the end of the weekend, helping UConn to a second place finish after losing a five-set decision to TCU. Kirk set career-highs in kills with 20 against the Wildcats and digs with 15 against the Horned Frogs in the Classic finale. Isaac was second among the tournament field, averaging 4.75 digs per match while Arriaran paced all with 10 assists per match. UConn lost just a single set entering the final match, winning in three sets over Long Island and in four against New Hampshire. A break in tournament action led the Huskies to a 3-2 victory over Ivy League foe Harvard led by a double-double from Kirk. She recorded 12 kills and 13 digs against the Crimson while Allison Nickel contributed a then-career-high in kills with nine.

Murray had 10 block assists in the game while it was Mickens who led the offense with 15 kills. The Huskies went 2-1 at the Dayton Flyer Tournament, opening the trip to Ohio with a three-set loss to the hosts before bouncing back with a pair of wins on Sept. 12. UConn defeated Creighton in fivesets and took Samford down in four. Mickens and Quayle garnered spots on the alltournament team after Quayle led UConn in kills in both wins. UConn hosted its final non-conference opponent in a midweek tilt against Northeastern, battling to a 3-2 victory over the other Huskies. Arriaran contributed her fifth doubledouble with a 43-assist and 18-dig effort at Gampel. Devon Farrell recorded four of her six total kills in the final set to aid the Huskies in the win. Isaac provided a highlight in a difficult trip to nearby Chestnut Hill, Mass. for the Boston College Tournament. The Huskies defeated Hartford, 3-1 in the final match of the tournament, falling to Boston College and Rhode Island prior to earning the win over the Hawks. In a three-set loss to Rhode Island, Isaac became the program leader in career-digs after totaling 12 against the Rams. Kirk was the lone Husky to receive a spot on the all-tourna-

ment team before the squad returned to open BIG EAST action at Gampel. Following a 3-1 loss to Notre Dame to mark the start of conference action, the Huskies bounced back to win four-straight. They swept both DePaul at home and Georgetown on the road with a five-set comeback victory at South Florida in between. Quayle notched the first double-double of her career adding 14 kills to a then career-high 19 digs in Tampa. Arriaran recorded a doubledouble of her own with 44 assists and 12 digs while Murray pitched in 12 kills in the win. UConn split the following weekend at home with a win over Marquette in four prior to falling by the same margin to Syracuse. That loss resulted in a bit of a down turn in the Huskies’ season as they lost to Villanova and Fairfield on the road before winning 3-2 at St. John’s near the end of October. The team recorded 11 service aces in the win over the Red Storm, giving UConn its first win over St. John’s since the 2004 season. Arriaran’s eighth overall and fourth double-double in BIG EAST fueled a balanced Husky offense that saw seven UConn players record six or more kills at Carnesca Arena. Despite the momentum of another five-set victory, the Huskies fell in the next two BIG EAST matches, including a three-set loss to Pittsburgh on Senior Day.

Jamie Hadenfeldt * Career and single season records begin with the 1990 season; statistics prior are unavailable. ** Single match records were compiled using statistics beginning with the 1995 season; complete match-by-match statistics prior are unavailable. *** Kara Brown also played in 1989; with the exception of assists, her statistics from the 1989 season have not been factored into her career totals. NOTE: season hitting percentage requires minimum of 100 kills and career hitting percentage requires minimum of 400 kills

nly six players in the history of Connecticut volleyball have collected both 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs during their Husky careers, including two members of the class of 1998. Kim Lobach was the first to accomplish such a feat when she collected 1,189 kills and 1,332 digs from 1990-93. Jennifer Halusek became the second member of the elite group after just three seasons at UConn, and upon finishing her four-year career, she totaled 1,165 kills and 1,393 digs from 1993-96. Heather Sokol joined the group in 1996, finishing a stellar career with 1,005 kills and 1,729 digs from 1993-96. Annette Rynn (1995-98) became the fourth Husky to reach the milestone, accomplishing the feat as a junior in 1997, and recorded 1,508 kills and 1,722 digs by graduation. Jenelle Koester (1995-98) became UConn’s all-time career kills leader as a junior, finishing her collegiate career with a total of 1,724, and joined this elite group when she completed her senior season with an even 1,000 digs. Most recently, Jamie Hadenfeldt (2001-04) joined the list her senior season, totaling 1,357 kills and 1,399 digs.

Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletics

Ingrid Hohmann The University of Connecticut is committed to each of its student-athletes as a total person. Participation in athletics is important, but it represents only one aspect of an individual’s college experience. At the University of Connecticut, academic achievement is a prime concern. Impressively, for the past five years, the Connecticut student-athlete academic retention rate has been 99.0 percent. The University’s commitment to the studentathlete is a dual one. Athletic participation is not viewed as an obstacle to the attainment of one’s educational goals, rather it is seen as a complimentary activity. Each supports the other. Athletic excellence is stressed, but academic achievement is never compromised - indeed, it is given the utmost priority. For this reason, the University recognizes the need for a support program for intercollegiate athletes. The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes (CPIA) assists the athletes in achieving their academic goals. The CPIA staff serves as liaison to the academic faculty and to the Division of Athletics. CPIA was established in 1986 to provide comprehensive academic support to all UConn student-athletes. CPIA’s staff includes a director, eight full-time counselors, three graduate assistants and a large complement of tutors. The program boasts its own Macintosh/IBM writing lab with access to the Internet, as well as reference tools in the Homer Babbidge Library. Writing tutors are available each weeknight in the CPIA office. CPIA also provides laptop computers for team use during travel to away games. Individual tutors in all subjects are readily available to student-athletes upon request.


University of Connecticut the big east conference 2010 University of Connecticut Volleyball

The BIG EAST Conference The 2010-11 academic year will be the 32nd in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2010-11 year will mark the conference’s sixth straight with the same 16-member group, the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. The BIG EAST Conference’s goals have always been the same. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2009-10 year was no different. Seven BIG EAST student-athletes were named NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners. Maya Moore, Connecticut’s women’s basketball standout, won the NCAA Honda-Broderick Award as the nation’s top female student-athlete. She also was named the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American of the Year for women’s basketball. Moore was the fifth BIG EAST women’s student-athlete to win the Honda-Broderick Award. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Connecticut women’s basketball team won its second straight national championship and its seventh overall crown. The Villanova women’s cross country team also won the NCAA title. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team reached the NCAA College Cup for the second straight year. The Syracuse women’s lacrosse squad reached the Final Four. On the men’s side, West Virginia’s basketball team became the BIG EAST’s 16th team to reach the NCAA Final Four and won the conference’s academic achievement award. The Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team advanced to the NCAA championship game. Individually, three BIG EAST student-athletes won NCAA titles. Cincinnati’s Josh Schneider won the 50 freestyle in men’s swimming. In track, Louisville’s D’Ana McCarty repeated as the NCAA indoor winner in the weight throw. Louisville’s Matt Hughes won the 3,000 steeplechase. Another Cardinal, Austen Childs, was the national runner-up in men’s tennis singles. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Cincinnati won its second straight league championship in 2009 and compiled an undefeated regular season. The Bearcats finished third in the final Bowl Championship Series standings. Six of the league’s eight squads went to bowl games and helped the BIG EAST post a 4-2 bowl record. Rutgers, one of the bowl winners, also was recognized for having the nation’s highest NCAA APR rating, which measures academic success. The BIG EAST has continued to produce student-athletes who are at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. In 2009-10, 22 BIG EAST players from 10 schools were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams. Over 400 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 28 national championships in six different sports and 128 studentathletes have won individual national titles. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 12 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken seven of the last 11 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST added men’s lacrosse to its growing list of sports, which increased its total to 24 sport championships. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has had the good fortune to have outstanding leadership. The BIG EAST primarily was the brainchild of Dave Gavitt, who was the conference’s first Commissioner. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST had one significant change. Tranghese stepped down from his position on June 30, 2009. John Marinatto, who had served as senior associate commissioner, moved into the Commissioner’s chair and continued to steer the conference on its path of success. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student athletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past seven years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. More than 575 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned all America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 student-athletes.
