TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona has placed its men's basketball program on probation for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons for violations by former coach Lute Olson related to an offseason AAU tournament in 2008.
The school also announced Friday that the basketball program will relinquish one scholarship for the 2011-12 academic year and cut the number of days coaches are allowed to recruit for the next two seasons. The Wildcats also will reduce the number of official campus visits allowed by prospects and trim the number of coaches allowed to recruit off campus at one time for summer 2010 recruiting.
Arizona also has disbanded a basketball booster group and undertaken a number of administrative and rules education changes. However, the NCAA may modify the self-imposed sanctions.
