Ryan Boatright's Family Attorney Upset With NCAA, Releases E-Mail

The family attorney representing Connecticut Huskies freshman guard Ryan Boatright's mother, Tanesha, is upset at the NCAA. On Sunday, just a few days after the univeristy announced that Boatright would be reinstated for Sunday's game against Notre Dame (noon on SNY) after another NCAA investigation into possible improper benefits, attorney Scott Tompsett released an e-mail to the media.

"I am astounded that the NCAA released confidential information about Ryan’s case," wrote Tompsett. "Ryan and his mother Tanesha cooperated fully with the NCAA with the clear understanding that the information they provided would be kept confidential and would not be released to the public. The NCAA has violated the Boatrights’ privacy by releasing their personal information."

Tompsett continued, saying that the NCAA release about Boatright's investigation has misleading information and that he is considering legal options.

Boatright missed UConn's first six games of the season because of compensation he received from an AAU coach prior to coming to UConn, and was held out the Huskies' previous three games because the NCAA received further information regarding Boatright's compensation prior to his time at Connecticut.
