LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky has told the
NCAA it disciplined a former men's basketball administrative
assistant for a secondary rules violation.
In response to an open records request by The Associated Press,
UK released information about the self-reporting of several minor
violations from its sports programs. Among them was an admission
that Bilal Batley broke NCAA rules when he shagged rebounds with an
unnamed student-athlete at a gym.
Batley was issued a letter of admonishment, according to the
report. UK athletics spokesman DeWayne Peevy said he has resigned
from the program but couldn't confirm the reason.
One other men's basketball violation involved a high school
basketball camp that advertised a UK player might appear. The
university listed that violation as inadvertent.
