Syracuse to go before NCAA infractions committee
Syracuse officials will meet with the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions later this month as part of an inquiry into the athletic department, according to reports.
Syracuse men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim and athletic director Daryl Gross both refused to comment to the Syracuse Post-Standard on whether they would be present at the hearing. CBSSports.com reported in March 2013 that the NCAA was investigating the men’s basketball program over major and wide-ranging violations.
One of the alleged violations involves the academic record of former Orange player Fab Melo. The 7-foot center played for Syracuse from 2010 to 2012.
Boeheim mentioned in his new book, “Bleeding Orange,” that the school is currently part of an NCAA investigation
In the book, Boeheim also addressed Melo’s situation: “We suspended him for three games. After that, we were under the impression that he could appeal and do some academic work to get himself eligible. He did that work.
“But then there arose a question about how he had gotten eligible, and he was declared ineligible again, right before the NCAA Tournament. The issue is extremely complicated, and at any rate I can’t really go into it because it is part of an ongoing NCAA investigation.”
It’s unclear whether the NCAA investigation extends beyond the basketball program at Syracuse.
