Cary, NC (AP) - Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John
Swofford says he's "highly disappointed" that Florida State
didn't bring several starters to the league's women's soccer
tournament in an apparent attempt to rest them for the upcoming
In a statement issued Thursday, Swofford called the Seminoles'
decision disrespectful because it "undermines the purity of the
competition that a conference championship deserves."
The commissioner said conference action will be forthcoming.
Swofford's statement came one day after Wake Forest beat Florida
State 3-1 in a quarterfinal. Seminoles coach Mark Krikorian called
it "a coach's decision" to leave at home seven players who made
the all-ACC first or second teams.
