Probe: UConn violated NCAA rules


Quite the report from the guys over at Yahoo! Why is it on RidiculousUpside, where I haven't covered college all season? Because of these three paragraphs: Soon after the expulsion, Nochimson had several discussions with two NBA Developmental League coaches about the possibility of Miles joining the minor league for the 2008-09 season. Nick Nurse of the Iowa Energy said he talked with Nochimson about bringing Miles to an open tryout later that month in Hoffman Estates, Ill. By attending the tryout, Nochimson wondered whether Miles could sidestep the D-League draft in November and get claimed as a territorial pick by the Energy. Nochimson also reached out to Clay Moser, the coach of the league’s Rio Grande Valley (Texas) franchise. Moser said he checked with D-League executives, who informed him that Miles was ineligible to play in the D-League for the 2008-09 season because he had been enrolled in college that semester. ##### This could have been very interesting had he been playing in the D-League today.
