NCAA adds to Arizona's self-imposed sanctionsPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- The NCAA has placed the University of Arizona men's basketball program on two year's probation and vacated 19 wins from the 2007-2008 season for violations involving Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson.
The NCAA upheld numerous self-imposed sanctions by the school, but took away an additional scholarship in 2012-2013 and vacated wins in games played by two players deemed ineligible. The NCAA also reduced more recruiting visits than the school had initially proposed for the next two school years.
The sanctions stem from Olson's involvement with a booster club and promotion of an AAU tournament. The NCAA did not reprimand Olson because he retired in 2008 and had suffered a stroke.
The university said it will not appeal the decision.
