NCAAM: USC Puts Itself on Probation

By Kristofor Molson     Jan 3, 2010 in Sports
The University of Southern California men's basketball team has sanctioned themselves for next year due to many rule violations.
University of Southern California has put themselves on punishment with self imposed sanctions due to many rules violations. The sanctions will include a ban on post season competition after this year along with a reduction of scholarships and vacating all of its wins from 2007-2008.
USC said the sanctions resulted from an internal investigation that found NCAA rules violation related to O.J. Mayo. Mayo played for the Trojans during the 2007-2008 season and now plays for the Memphis Grizzlies. The sanctions are connected to Mayo's involvement with Rodney Guillory who became a USC booster due to his involvement with recruiting O.J. Mayo.
On "Outside The Lines" in 2008 a former associate of O.J. Mayo accused Guillory of providing Mayo with improper benefits while he played for the Trojans. USC said it will vacate all wins that O.J. Mayo played in while ineligible and will return the money they received through the Pac-10 for taking part in the 2008 NCAA tournament.
