Geno's Outburst Goes Unpunished

Big East Will Not Take Action

The Big East has decided not to take any action following Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma's postgame exchange with a Syracuse player last week.

Commissioner Mike Tranghese issued a statement Tuesday saying both schools' athletic directors have assured him there will be no repeat of the incident, and both are committed to the league's principles of sportsmanship.

Auriemma had words with Syracuse's Nicole Michael in the handshake line after the Huskies' 107-53 victory Saturday, and was pulled away from the junior forward by assistant coach Shea Ralph.

When Auriemma went back through the line to leave the court, Michael appeared to step in his direction, and he tripped over her foot. He was then led away by his players.
