UConn president’s statement on Boatright

UConn President Susan Herbst released a statement Sunday morning on the Ryan Boatright case. Reading between the lines, it seems UConn wasn’t thrilled with the NCAA’s account of what occurred in the case:

“We are pleased that Ryan is now eligible to play basketball, and thank his family, friends, fellow students, faculty, coaches and everyone who has supported him and the university over the last several months.

“This young man has shown tremendous patience and poise all the while in the national spotlight. This is a strength of character that is seldom demanded of college freshmen and I am extraordinarily proud of him, our team and our coaching staff.

“As far as the process that took place over the last few months, the University does have ideas about how it might be improved and we would like continue this dialogue.”
