    Little League star Mo'ne Davis says she's "sad" that UConn received a secondary NCAA rules violation for coach Geno Auriemma's congratulatory phone call to her during the Little League World Series.

    The 13-year-old Davis said they talked last month about her success in the World Series for Philadelphia's Taney Dragons, and there was no recruiting talk.

    On Thursday, the NCAA announced the recruiting violation after a complaint was brought to the attention of the American Athletic Conference. Davis mentioned during the World Series she'd like to play basketball for UConn and eventually in the WNBA.

    Davis was a guest of the WNBA on Friday at its annual luncheon in New York.
