ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An NCAA investigation has confirmed that two players on the University of Alaska women’s basketball team improperly received payments from a former head coach and his volunteer assistant.
The team will be on probation for two years as a penalty for payments made by former coach Tim Moser and assistant Elisha Harris.
Moser resigned in May 2012 and is an assistant coach at Colorado State University. In a statement from the school, Moser apologized and says he exercised poor judgment in assisting two players with housing costs.
UAA Chancellor Tom Case and athletic director Keith Hackett announced the penalties at a press conference.
The team will remain eligible for post-season play but will lose part of one of its 10 scholarships in 2015.
