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.
