SU Men's Basketball self-imposes sanctions over ongoing NCAA investigation - no post-season play

http://www.cnycentral.com/news/story.aspx?id=1159294

SYRACUSE -- In response to an NCAA investigation, Syracuse University has announced a self-imposed post season ban on its men's basketball team.

You can read below the press release from the school:

ďSyracuse University today announced that it previously notified the NCAA that it has instituted a self-imposed post-season ban for the menís basketball 2014-15 season as part of its case pending before the NCAA Committee on Infractions.

The University initiated the case when it self-reported potential violations within the Athletics Department to the NCAA in 2007. Much of the conduct involved in the case occurred long ago and none occurred after 2012. No current student-athlete is involved. In addition, beginning in 2007, the University took a series of actions to reform and strengthen existing policies and procedures, implement a series of best practices, and realign and improve a range of student-athlete support services.

The University appeared before the NCAA Committee on Infractions in October 2014 and has continued to cooperatively engage with the Committee. As a further means of acknowledging past mistakes, the University notified the NCAA that it will be voluntarily withholding the menís basketball team from post-season competition following the current 2014-15 season. This one-year ban includes the ACC Tournament and any additional post-season tournaments such as the NCAA Menís Division I Basketball Tournament and the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). This action is accompanied by other self-imposed penalties the University also instituted and which the NCAA Committee on Infractions will make public when it issues its final report.
