I don't see any momentum for Ice Hockey at UVA.


Craig Littlepage has been asked about it before, and he has no interest.

I could see interest in Women's Gymnastics particularly since UNC, NC State, and Pittsburgh have it, and it is getting television airtime by ESPN on the ACC Network Extra right now. It would be a good use of UHall. The floor space at UHall would be suited better for Gymnastics than for Ice Hockey because it is circular.

If we did Ice Hockey JPJ is very capable, but the big donors that gave the money to build JPJ want it exclusively used for basketball. Unless that changes, I don't see Ice Hockey.
