The Associated Press asked 84 top universities with major basketball programs as well as six top conferences about their response to a federal corruption scandal that has overshadowed college hoops as the season gets ready to begin.

Of 63 schools that responded, 28 said the probe prompted their own internal reviews. So did the Pac-12 conference, which formed a task force to dive into the culture and issues of recruiting. Another 35 schools and the Big East Conference said they were not specifically responding to the federal probe, though many of the "no" responses came with the caveat that the school's athletic department is always reviewing its compliance.

Here's a full list of how each school and conference responded to the question: "Are you reviewing your own basketball program — internally or with a consultant — as a response to the federal probe?"

The spate of arrests, the details of under-the-table bribes to teenagers and the expected downfall of one of the sport’s best-known coaches has triggered uncomfortable soul searching among universities that run the nation’s most prominent college basketball programs. A top Adidas marketing executive was among the 10 people arrested, after authorities spent two years untangling schemes, often bankrolled with money from apparel companies, to steer future NBA players toward particular sports agents and financial advisers.

At stake is the future of a business that, over the span of 22 years ending in 2032, will produce $19.6 billion in TV money for the NCAA Tournament, known to the public, simply, as March Madness.
