Investigation continuing on Howard death

Maj. Ron Blicher of the UConn Police Department said he doesn't anticipate any announcements today in the investigation of Jasper Howard's murder. The investigation continues, and Blicher said police are pursuing active leads.

On the Big East Conference call today, most coaches are all sending condolences to Jasper's family and the UConn community before taking questions.

Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe expressed shock and sympathy. Howard played a key role in the Huskies' win over Louisville just hours before. "Jasper played a great football game," Kragthorpe said. "I had a lot of respect for him going into the game and even more coming out of the game."

"At a time like this, a close conference like the Big East has to come together," Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said.

Randy Edsall is scheduled to come on at 11:40 a.m. I'll update after he speaks.
