NEW YORK - BIG EAST Commissioner Val Ackerman recently sat down for an interview with USA Today, and a video from that conversation has been released by the publication.
Since being tabbed for her role by the 10 BIG EAST presidents last June, Ackerman has led the conference through an already successful 2013-14 academic year with the spring championship season still to come. Two national championships were won in the fall by BIG EAST squads in women's cross country and field hockey. Most recently, the BIG EAST Women's Basketball Tournament crowned DePaul its champion in Chicago and charter member Providence claimed the men's basketball title after a tremendously successful four-day tournament at Madison Square Garden.
Ackerman spoke to USA Today about a variety of topics. To watch the video, click here.
