Never let it be said there’s nothing to do in Storrs, CT. For instance, you could drive to Bristol. From the AP :
Connecticut has responded to N.C.A.A. concerns that its women™s basketball office helped arrange a private tour of Bristol-based ESPN for then-top recruit Maya Moore.
The tour, which might have violated N.C.A.A. rules because it may be considered a benefit not available to all Connecticut students, took place in October 2005 and included Moore and her mother, Kathryn.
Connecticut declined Wednesday to say whether the university reported the incident itself or whether the N.C.A.A. considered it a violation.
œThe institution has worked with the N.C.A.A. on the matter and the association has taken no action, the university said in a statement.
Josh Krulewitz, an ESPN spokesman, confirmed that the network set up the tour for Moore and her mother after being contacted by a member of Connecticut™s women™s basketball office. The Storrs campus is about an hour drive from the Bristol studios. At the time of the tour, Moore, the two-time national high school player of the year from Georgia, was courted by several high-profile programs, including Tennessee. She eventually signed with Connecticut and starred this season as a freshman, winning the conference player of the year award. Citing unidentified sources, ESPN reported Wednesday the N.C.A.A. began looking into the tour after fielding a complaint from the Southeastern Conference over concerns raised by Tennessee.
