Re: Oklahoma admits major hoops violations
Adding to the above:
The AP reports:
The NCAA put Oklahomaon three years of probation and fine the school $15,000 on Friday for major violations in its men's basketball program.
The Division I infractions committee also vacated all 13 wins from Oklahoma's 2009-10 season, took away a scholarship and limited recruiting efforts, but did not label the school a "repeat violator," which would have made Oklahoma vulnerable to more severe penalties.
Most of the penalties had been proposed by the school, which said former assistant Oronde Taliaferro broke NCAA rules by failing to report that a player had received an impermissible extra benefit and by lying to investigators. The NCAA said its findings included unethical conduct by the former coach, extra benefits, preferential treatment and ineligible participation.
