Geno Auriemma's reaction to death of Dave Gavitt

Here is a statement from UConn women's basketball coach about the death of former Big East Commissioner Dave Gavitt

"Dave was a great man; a renaissance man who was at the forefront of all that was good in college basketball. One reason I wanted to coach at UConn was so that I could be in Dave Gavitt’s league. Twenty seven years later I'm still not in his league and never will be. Without Dave there is no Big East and without the Big East there would never have been a UConn as we have come to know it. This is a sad, sad day."
