INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The NCAA says Indiana basketball coach Kelvin Sampson and his staff violated telephone recruiting restrictions imposed because of his previous violations at Oklahoma, then lied about it to the school and NCAA investigators.
The NCAA has listed five major violations against Sampson, saying he gave ``false or misleading information,'' The Indianapolis Star reports. Indiana spokesman Larry McIntyre confirms the Star report and says IU plans to release the report later Wednesday.
Major violations of NCAA rules can carry punishments including postseason ineligibility.
IU has until May 8 to provide a written response.
