HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ University of Connecticut President Susan
Herbst says the school will remain a successful athletic
institution despite not being invited to join the Atlantic Coast
Conference.

The Huskies were thought to be a leading contender to join the
ACC as a replacement for Maryland, which announced last week that
it was leaving for the Big 10.

But UConn was snubbed Wednesday in favor of Louisville, which
becomes the fifth Big East football program in just over a year to
announce it is leaving for another conference.

Herbst called it a difficult day, but said UConn’s teams will
continue to be successful no matter what conference they end up in.

“We are winners,” she said. “We win, we like to win and we
will continue to play the best possible opponents.”
