The National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I Committee on Infractions said on Tuesday that it had penalized Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and the University of Texas-Pan American for major violations in their sports programs. The cases were resolved through the NCAA's summary disposition process, in which the parties reach agreement on the findings and the penalties. The infractions panel required IUPUI to vacate victories in all of its 14 sports, after finding that the university had improperly certified the eligibility of 97 athletes over four academic years and failed to institute institutional control over its sports program. The committee placed Texas-Pan Am on two years' probation and imposed scholarship reductions after finding that men's basketball coaches made impermissible phone calls to 13 recruits.
