FILE - In this March 7, 2009, file photo,  Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun reacts during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh.

But the university says the evidence does not support the NCAA allegation that coach Jim Calhoun _ who has won two national titles with the Huskies _ failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance.
