In making the announcement Monday from the NCAA's infractions appeals committee, the NCAA has denied Bennett's appeal that included the claim of a procedural error involved.
In March, the NCAA put Saint Mary's on four years of probation for a ``failure to monitor its men's basketball program,'' reducing scholarships by two for the 2014-15 and 15-16 seasons.
Saint Mary's will still be allowed to participate in the league tournament and the NCAA tournament but can't play in preseason or in-season tournaments not already contractually obligated to attend.
