Subject: Trouble for SFA?

SFA Releases NCAA Allegations
Letter containing llist of allegations concerning men's basketball program at SFA.

Nov. 1, 2004

Stephen. F. Austin State University received a letter and Notice of Allegations from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) regarding its men's basketball program. The Notice contains allegations of rules violations that occurred during the period of 2000-04. The University has been fully cooperative with the NCAA during the investigation and active in working jointly with the NCAA in developing information related to these matters over the past 12 months.

The allegations are limited to:

Improper delivery of the National Letter of Intent to two prospective student-athletes only one of whom enrolled at the University;

Improper mandatory requirement that enrolled men's basketball student-athletes participate in out-of-season workouts;

Excessive number of men's basketball coaches recruiting; specifically, on one occasion, for a two-hour period, three men's basketball coaches were away from the University's campus for recruiting purposes; and

Failure to monitor the men's basketball program for rules compliance based on the previously mentioned allegations.

At this time, these are the only allegations. There is no allegation of a lack of institutional control. The interviews conducted by the University and the NCAA have produced some conflicting information for some of the allegations.

Consistent with NCAA and University policy, the University will not discuss the specifics of the investigation until the case is decided.
