UConn ordered to return NCAA money
The NCAA Executive Committee has ruled that the University must return $90,970 from its 1996 NCAA tournament revenue as a result of rules violations by players Kirk King and Ricky Moore. The committee also ruled that the three tournament games played in that tournament be vacated because of the participation of ineligible athletes.

King and Moore had accepted airline tickets from an agent. The University had no knowledge of the infractions at the time of the tournament.
