“My overall point is that ‘one and dones’ are not healthy for college basketball,” Knight said. “I should not have made it personal to Kentucky and its players and I apologize.”
Knight made the comments about the starters from the 2009-10 Kentucky team during a speaking engagement in Indiana on Saturday.
“Bob Knight’s comments do not reflect the opinions of and are not endorsed by ESPN,” said ESPN executive vice president Norby Williamson. “We have communicated to him our disappointment and welcome his apology.”
