men’s basketball program, and has asked the NCAA for leniency despite this being the schools second serious infractions case in the past five years.

Under NCAA bylaws, a “repeat violator” can face a minimum of having the sport dropped for one or two seasons with no scholarships provided for two seasons. However; the NCAA infractions committee has the authority to override such a designation.

Oklahoma has asked the NCAA to place the program on two more years of probation, vacate its wins from a 13-and-18 season in 2009-10 and take away one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days during the upcoming academic year.
