Kansas enlists outside law firm for basketball review

The Kansas Jayhawks aren’t taking any chances with their basketball program review.

Kansas has enlisted an outside law firm to help with the NCAA-mandated review of its basketball program. Bond, Schoeneck & King, a law firm based in Overland Park, Kan., will assist the Jayhawks, according to Matt Tait of KUsports.com.

“In light of the NCAA’s request, we have enlisted them to make sure that we’re doing it the way we need to do it,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said.

The Lawrence Journal-World obtained a copy of an NCAA memo sent to all member universities. The NCAA requires schools to conduct a thorough investigation for potential violations.

In particular, the NCAA is looking for “offers, inducements, agents, extra benefits and other similar issues.”

The law firm will help Kansas’ athletic compliance department conduct the review.
