Four Brigham Young boosters provided more than $12,000 in complimentary all-inclusive vacations, cash, meals, golf and the use of a car to a men’s basketball student-athlete in violation of NCAA rules, according to a Division I Committee on Infractions panel. The COI found that most of the impermissible benefits were given by one booster and included approximately $10,000 worth of all-expenses-paid trips, the use of a car and car insurance. Two other boosters treated the student-athlete to free golf outings and meals at a country club where they were members. One of those boosters also provided or left $200 cash in the locker room for the student-athlete during practice. Division I membership-approved infractions penalty guidelines were used to prescribe the following measures: Two years of probation from Nov. 9, 2018, through Nov. 8, 2020. A vacation of records in which the student-athlete participated while ineligible. A reduction of one men’s basketball scholarship, served during the earliest possible academic year (self-imposed by the university). Recruiting restrictions detailed in the public report. A disassociation of one of the boosters (self-imposed by the university). A $5,000 fine (self-imposed by the university). – NCAARead More
