NCAA accepts Missouri’s sanctions, adds year of probation
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The NCAA says it has accepted Missouri’s self-imposed sanctions over infractions involving its men’s basketball program but has tacked on a year of probation though August of next year.
The NCAA infractions committee panel announced its findings Tuesday.
Missouri has admitted NCAA violations dating to 2011 and announced in January that it was vacating its 23 wins from 2013-14. The school also banned itself from the postseason last season and stripped itself of one scholarship last season and a second scholarship no later than 2017-18.
The school permanently banned one unidentified donor who the NCAA said provided impermissible benefits to three players and one recruit in 2013-14. The benefits included compensation for work not done at a business through a summer intern program, along with housing and other items.
