LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky president Lee Todd
says he has no problem with the way the school has handled the
investigation into freshman point guard John Wall's eligibility.
Todd said Tuesday the school was simply trying to protect Wall
and did not apologize for being more forthright about Wall's
status. ESPN.com reported last week the NCAA was looking into
whether Wall's relationship with his AAU coach - who worked briefly
as a licensed sports agent during Wall's high school career -
violated NCAA amateurism rules.
The report said the school has known about the situation for
some time, but Todd said the university did not want to put Wall
and his family through press scrutiny.
