Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby comments on college basketball corruption trial

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby speaks to reporters during the Big 12 NCAA college football media day at the Dallas Cowboys practice facilities in Frisco, Texas, Monday, July 17, 2017.

Kansas City, Mo. — Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby fielded several questions regarding the federal trial on corruption in college basketball on Wednesday morning at Sprint Center, site of Big 12 basketball media day.

With reigning conference champion and national preseason No. 1 Kansas often coming up during the trial the past couple of weeks, Bowlsby was asked about possible ramifications for KU, the timetable for the NCAA looking into the matters addressed in federal court and how much of a black eye this has been for college basketball.

While Bowlsby said he had spoken with both KU basketball coach Bill Self and athletic director Jeff Long, the commissioner stated they weren’t at liberty to share a lot of information.
