(Storrs, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – The national champion UConn women’s basketball team will be unable to participate in a ceremony prior to tonight’s Red Sox-Yankees game at Fenway Park.

In a statement, the UConn athletic department says due to an unforeseen conflict, the team won’t be participating in the first pitch ceremony.

The hope is the women’s team will be able to take part in a ceremony at a later date.

The UConn men’s hoops team, coming off a national championship win of its own this month, is still scheduled to part in the ceremony.
