Bills piling up for UConn

From the AP, which recaps information in this report by the Hartford Courant:

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut has spent more than $338,000 in legal fees related to the NCCA's investigation of its basketball program.

The Hartford Courant reported Monday that legal bills were paid to the Kansas City law firm of Bond, Schoeneck & King between April 2009 and April 2010. The firm specializes in NCAA compliance issues.

Records show the state also has agreed to spend an additional $375,000 for the firm's services.

The NCAA has spent more than a year investigating the school's recruitment of former player Nate Miles.

UConn athletic department spokesman Mike Enright says the money for the legal bills comes from funds generated by the school's athletic department, and there is no taxpayer or tuition money involved.
