Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan and several other high-profile college basketball coaches opted out of attending a dinner in honor of a former shoe executive because their attendance might have been a possible NCAA violation.
According to ESPN.com, Donovan decided to back out at the last minute after talking with Florida's compliance department. The dinner was for Sonny Vaccaro.
Donovan has spent the past month attending basketball camps around the country, including Vegas, checking out the nation's top prospects in action.
