Memphis basketball charged with violations, avoids postseason ban

After a years-long NCAA infractions investigation, the University of Memphis was charged with committing multiple Level II and Level III NCAA violations Tuesday.

However, the Tigers basketball program and coach Penny Hardaway avoided significant sanctions and penalties, eluding a postseason ban and a suspension of any length for Hardaway.

Memphis received a $5,000 fine, three years of probation and the basketball team must vacate the two wins from the 2019-20 season that former star center James Wiseman participated in.

“We have finally arrived at the end of an extremely challenging period, and I could not be more grateful,” Hardaway said in a statement. “I would like to thank our players and their families, as well as our coaches and our support staff , for continuing to focus on what we could control as this process lingered.
