SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was suspended for nine games Friday, with the school punished for ignoring the "most fundamental core values of the NCAA" for academic, drug and other violations committed primarily by the men's basketball program.
The school was put on probation for five years and the basketball team must vacate wins in which ineligible players participated, the governing body said. Those players competed during five seasons: 2004-2007 and 2010-2012.
The punishment includes financial penalties and the reduction of three men's basketball scholarships a year for four years. Recruiting restrictions will be enforced for two years. Boeheim's suspension will be applied to Atlantic Coast Conference games next year.
