ESPN, still pushing to get UConn’s side of the story regarding the end of the series with Tennessee, decided to use the Huskies’ press conference as its chance to beat a dead horse.
An ESPN reporter asked coach Geno Auriemma a Tennessee related question and was told by the tournament moderator to keep questions tailored to this weekend’s games. After being rebuked, another ESPN staffer asked a similar question and debated with the moderator over what can and can’t be asked. Infuriated with its lack of success, one of the reporters followed Auriemma in hopes of extracting an answer.
Why, after ESPN was denied at the Big East Tournament, is the cable sports network continuing to push the situation?
It is airing a feature Sunday morning on “Outside the Lines” on the UConn-Tennessee rivalry.
