INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA placed the University of Northern Colorado men's basketball program on three years' probation among other sanctions Friday after finding academic fraud and recruiting violations by ex-coach B.J. Hill and some of his assistants.
The violations by Hill and eight members of his staff over a four-year span included completing coursework for prospects, paying for classes prospects needed to become academically eligible and arranging off-campus practice sessions with an academically ineligible student-athlete.
In addition to probation, penalties in the case include a one-year postseason ban (already served) for the men's basketball team; a financial penalty; scholarship and recruiting restrictions; and a vacation of records.
