The National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I Committee on Infractions banned the men's tennis team at the University of South Alabama from postseason competition next year in response to several major violations of association rules. The infractions panel found that the university's former coach had engaged in unethical conduct by providing more than $12,000 in impermissible financial aid to international athletes, giving cash to another player for a visa, and refusing to cooperate with NCAA investigators. The NCAA also concluded that the university had failed to monitor the conduct of the tennis program. South Alabama faced tougher penalties than it might have otherwise because this was its second major infractions case this decade; in addition to the postseason ban, it must vacate all games in which the ineligible athletes participated.
