Three-time national champion Connecticut and nine other men's basketball teams were banned from the 2013 NCAA Tournament on Wednesday because of poor Academic Progress Rate scores.
The penalties affect seven conferences, each of which must adapt to a new landscape for their league tournaments. Five conferences - the Big East, Big West, Ohio Valley, Southland and Southwest Athletic - said the banned teams cannot compete in their league tournaments.
"We'll have to adjust the bracket accordingly," Big East associate commissioner for men's basketball Dan Gavitt said. "We would accommodate it in such a way that it would work. We would just have to eliminate a game and move someone up on the line."
Joining the Huskies on the sideline in March will be Arkansas-Pine Bluff, UC Riverside, Cal State Bakersfield, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley State, North Carolina-Wilmington, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Toledo and Towson.
Cal State Bakersfield, which became a full-fledged Division I member in 2010-11 and doesn't have a conference affiliation in basketball, could still be removed from the banned list because some of the school's data are still being reviewed.
Each of the record 10 schools fell below the mandated four-year cutline of 900 or the two-year cutline of 930 and will face additional sanctions.
Connecticut, which had a four-year score of 889 and a two-year score of 902, must replace four hours of practice time with academic activities each week.
Also banned were Championship Subdivision teams Hampton, North Carolina A&T and Texas Southern in football; Central Connecticut State in men's soccer; and Northern Colorado in men's wrestling.
In all, 54 teams fell below the 900 mark with roughly 80 percent (43) of them coming from what the NCAA defines as limited-resource schools.
Judges' review says Pacquiao won fight
The five judges assembled by the WBO to review Timothy Bradley's split decision over Manny Pacquiao on June 9 all scored it a Pacquiao win: 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113.
The WBO cannot overturn the result of the fight, and Pacquiao said he would prefer a rematch rather than Bradley giving up the WBO welterweight title.
