STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut has announced self-imposed penalties that include the loss of a scholarship for the 2019-20 season due to violations of NCAA rules under former basketball coach Kevin Ollie. The school said it also will restrict its recruiting by limiting official and unofficial visits and cutting the number of recruiting days this year from 130 to 126. The school also plans to pay a $5,000 fine among penalties it hopes will avoid further sanctions from the NCAA.
