Syracuse Statement on NCAA Hearing: Current Athletes Not Involved in Potential Violations

New, comments

The NCAA hearing involving Syracuse Orange Athletics wrapped up today and the school released a statement.

"Earlier today, Syracuse University concluded a hearing before the NCAA Committee on Infractions. The hearing completes a cooperative process stemming from the University's self-report of potential NCAA violations.

"None of the potential violations involve current-student athletes. The issues regarding men's basketball and football occurred years ago, with the exception of certain issues in basketball occurring between 2010 and early 2012. Since first self-reporting to the NCAA in 2007, the University, in partnership with the Department of Athletics, has implemented a series of best practices, reformed and strengthened existing policies and procedures, and realigned and improved a range of student-athlete support services.

"The University is fully committed to ensuring compliance with all NCAA regulations and maintaining the highest standards of integrity and responsibility. With this significant step in the process complete, we look forward to reviewing the Committee's findings and resolving this matter."

Boeheim added his own statement when approached by a reporter in the hotel lobby.

"You know better."

Now, Syracuse will have to wait 30-60 days before learning it's fate. If violations are found to have happened, the NCAA will issue a report publicly and then Syracuse will have the chance to appeal.
