The UConn men’s basketball program is under investigation by the NCAA.
While there are few details regarding the reported probe, it is believed that the investigation into the Huskies’ program is related to “the area of recruiting.”
UConn confirmed the news to Hearst Connecticut Media.
“We are working closely with the NCAA enforcement division,” UConn said in a statement.
According to the report, there is no connection between the investigation into Connecticut and the current FBI investigation:
There is no evidence that the UConn situation is linked to the soliciting and bribery charges of funneling money to families of players and to assistant coaches. A UConn source said the FBI has not contacted the school and that there is no link to the criminal case that involved Adidas along with a number of financial advisors and managers.
UConn is currently 11-9 on the season and fresh off of the first losing season for the program in three decades.
