UConn hopes self-imposed sanctions enough wire reports

INDIANAPOLIS -- The University of Connecticut's hearing before the NCAA infractions committee to discuss men's basketball violations concluded Friday after more than 12 hours.

Connecticut has acknowledged the program committed major NCAA recruiting violations and has imposed its own sanctions, including two years' probation and a loss of one scholarship for the next two seasons.

But the university has said the evidence does not support the NCAA's allegation that coach Jim Calhoun -- who has won two national titles with the Huskies -- failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance.

The committee could accept UConn's decision or impose additional penalties.

Calhoun and athletic director Jeff Hathaway had no comment before or after the meetings.
