(AP) -- Lefty Driesell, University of Maryland basketball coach, said he will look into the legality of obtaining a $1 million insurance policy for high school basketball star Moses Malone. In a telephone interview late Friday, Driesell said: "If it's okay, I'll help him get the policy. . .1 know the rules and I mow that no one can put up :he money (needed for the policy). I don't intend to do any- His comments came after The Washington Star-News reported Friday that the University of Maryland promised Maione help in obtaining the insurance policy against injury as one means of persuading him :o sign a grant-in-aid. Dreisell confirmed that he, and other coaches interested in Malone, told the youth before signing of the advisability of such a policy. The Terrapin coach also dicated that other prominent college basketball stars, such as North Carolina State's David Thompson and UCLA's Bill Walton have similar high-figured insurance policies. Malone, a 6-foot-ll standout from Petersburg, Va., High School, was the most heavily recruited player in the nation. He announced on Thursday he would attend Maryland. He had no comment on Friday's developments. Star-News sports writer Morris Seigel said in a column that Maione had demanded to be insured for $1 million against injuries for the time he is at the university, as protection for a subsequent professional career. Seigel said the university had agreed to arrange a loan for Malone so he may pay premiums on such a policy, esti mated by Lloyd's of London at between $5,000 and $10,000 a year. But Driesell said "He (Sei;el) doesn't know what he's talking about," when asked about the reports and accused aim of making inaccurate statements. But the Star-News quoted Driesell as explaining the arrangement as follows: "It could work this way. You know he's going to get a million dollar contract when he turns pro. He can't miss. What bank won't gamble on delaying payment until he signs with the pros? "Any pro team would be happy to pay off the loan as part of his bonus." The newspaper quoted Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner Bob James as saying that ACC rules prohibit the University of Maryland, or any of its officials, from co-signing the note or suggesting to the bank that if Malone doesn't pay off, the university or its friends will guarantee payment.
