Coming off the dream season, it's been the worst case scenario for the BU Men's Basketball Team.

As a result, Head Coach Kevin Broadus has been unavailable for comment, and his administration has said he seems distraught and exhausted.

But he still still honored his commitment to speak at this morning's Binghamton Basketball Coaches Clinic at the Regency.

Broadus spoke for about an hour on the subject of recruiting and marketing players.

Afterwards I attempted to get his response to this scandalous chain of events.

The Press and Sun Bulletin has reported that was an apology to the community.

After reviewing the tape, it's not clear if that was Broadus' intent or if he was simply apologizing for not commenting any further.

The university has said all players, coaches and administrators will not comment any further.

One of the other Division One basketball coaches in attendance says he can empathize with Broadus' position.

Wagner College coach Mike Deane helped build the Siena program to a Division 1 contender, reaching the NCAA tournament in the late 1980s.

He sees a lot of similarities between the programs and believes Broadus can still make BU a winner.

Deane did add that he's not a fan of taking on Junior-College transfers, a practice that has been common at BU since it became a D-1 program eight years ago.
