UK says Knox’s eligibility not threatened by Yahoo Sports story

UK released a statement Saturday saying that this week’s Yahoo Sports story alleging widespread corruption in college basketball will not threaten Kevin Knox’s eligibility. Knox and two former UK players — Bam Adebayo and Nerlens Noel — were mentioned in the story that implicated at least 20 Division I programs and more than 25 players in what it called an “underground recruiting operation.”
