The University of Connecticut has suspended a woman’s soccer player who made an obscene gesture to a television camera following the Huskies’ win in Sunday’s American Athletic Conference championship game.
Freshman Noriana Radwan showed her middle finger to an ESPNU camera while celebrating with teammates after the Huskies beat the University of South Florida Bulls 3-2 on penalty kicks.
Radwan, who did not play in the game, has been suspended indefinitely from team activities and will not play in the NCAA tournament.
“The University of Connecticut and its women’s soccer program would like to apologize for an inappropriate gesture a UConn student-athlete made to an ESPNU camera following today’s American Athletic Conference championship game…. The issue has already been addressed by the coaching staff to the student-athlete. The student-athlete has been indefinitely suspended from all team activities, including participation in UConn’s upcoming NCAA tournament games.”
