USC has decided to forfeit victories, reduce recruiting and stay out of this season's NCAA and even Pac-10 tournament, after turning up violations in the recruitment of O.J. Mayo.
Here's a good report from the LA Times.
And here's a statement from Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott:
"We have been working closely with USC and the NCAA in independent investigations of USC's basketball program. USC's decision to self-impose aggressive penalties on itself is clear recognition of how seriously the University takes this matter and the sincere commitment of the Athletic Department, University leadership and new Coach Kevin O'Neill to correct mistakes that were made in the past and to set the program on a track to maintain the highest standards expected of every institution in the Pac-10 and the NCAA."
Never miss a local story.
Doesn't sound like the league is interested in adding to the penalties.
