UCONN involved in a Women's Basketball recruiting violation??

Connecticut has responded to NCAA concerns that its women's basketball office helped arrange a private tour of Bristol-based ESPN for then-top recruit Maya Moore.

The tour might have violated NCAA rules because it may be considered a benefit not available to all UConn students. It took place in October 2005 and included Moore and her mother, Kathryn.

Citing unidentified sources, ESPN reported Wednesday the NCAA began looking into the tour after fielding a complaint from the Southeastern Conference over concerns raised by Tennessee. SEC spokeswoman Tammy Wilson and Lady Vols spokeswoman Debby Jennings declined to comment Wednesday.

UConn refused to say whether the school self-reported the incident or whether the NCAA considered it a violation.
