The NCAA is investigating the UConn men's basketball program, the school said in a statement on Friday.

The university has been in the process of an NCAA-mandated internal investigation with an athletics compliance law firm, Lightfoot, Franklin and White, and noted that it has been "working closely with the NCAA's enforcement division."

Hearst Connecticut Media reported late Thursday that the NCAA investigation centers on recruiting and Huskies coach Kevin Ollie. Ollie is in the second year of a five-year, $17.9 million contract that can be voided for just cause.
