Oregon St. Violates Rules

An Oregon State investigation has revealed serious NCAA violations in its women’s basketball program, athletic director Dutch Baughman said.

Baughman said the university has filed a report with the Pacific-10 Conference on the violations, which coach Aki Hill called “minor” and of no concern.

The announcement of violations followed recent reports that Baughman asked Hill to retire. Baughman denied he asked or recommended Hill’s retirement.

Baughman would not specify the violations or whether players were involved but said the infractions were severe enough that the Pac-10 and the NCAA could deem them major.

He said Oregon State has imposed sanctions on its women’s program, including declaring some players ineligible.
