CINCINNATI (AP) -- The NCAA placed the University of Cincinnati on two years of probation Thursday for violating rules on calling recruits in its women's basketball and football programs.
The NCAA said the university discovered the improper calls and reported them. The NCAA infractions committee found a major violation in women's basketball and secondary ones in football and women's basketball.
The university said the NCAA accepted its self-imposed sanctions, which it has completed. They include restrictions on making calls to recruits during certain periods and on the size of the women's basketball staff and its recruiters this season.
