A University of Nevada Las Vegas committee that investigated alleged recruiting violations by Rebel basketball coaches was unable to reach a conclusion because of conflicting evidence.

Findings of the investigation, prompted by a Newsday story on the recruiting of former New York high school star Lloyd Daniels, will be sent to the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. and eventually to the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.

Daniels refused to talk to the committee.

The newspaper's article alleged that Daniels accepted illegal payments from UNLV recruiter Mark Warkentein and that Warkentein might have violated NCAA regulations by becoming Daniels' legal guardian. It also alleged that Daniels was given a car and free meals at Las Vegas hotels.

Daniels was arrested in February for buying cocaine and dropped out of school without ever playing for the team. Earlier this month, Daniels was given probation on the charge and left for Topeka, Kan., where he signed to play in the Continental Basketball Assn.
