 COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina has reported 14 NCAA secondary violations from the past six months, including one for an improper text message to a recruit and another for ``impermissible snacks.''
Five of the violations were from the first-year program of men's basketball coach Darrin Horn.
The school's athletic department released the violations this week. It discloses secondary violations twice a year because of open records requests made by The Associated Press and other media outlets.
The NCAA rulebook defines secondary violations as ``isolated or inadvertent by nature,'' that give only a minimal recruiting or competitive advantage and that don't involve significant inducements or extra benefits. For instance, South Carolina was cited because ``student-athletes were provided impermissible snacks during away-from-home contests.''
eported on Feb. 13 that a basketball player and a recruit were provided entertainment not allowed under NCAA rules during an official visit.
The other basketball violations were classified as Level II, infractions processed by the Southeastern Conference office and sent to the NCAA after the academic year. Those included a basketball prospect interviewed by the media during an official visit; free tickets not issued according to procedure; impermissible free tickets to South Carolina's NIT loss to Davidson at the Colonial Life Arena in March; and a prospect was given improper hotel accommodations during an official visit.
The names of any coaches, staff, players or recruits were not included in the infractions report. The school said all eligibility restoration requests involving the infractions were granted.
South Carolina's football program was cited for three infractions, two of which were the more severe variety.
The school said an assistant coach wrongly text-messaged a prospect and football recruits watched a display that simulated a game-day experience against NCAA rules.
Also, an ineligible player was provided transportation to an away game.
l visit before getting proper approval.
The remaining three infractions involved men's soccer players given an impermissible nutritional supplement; a men's swimmer competing before he was certified as eligible; and an athlete practicing past the two-week period allowed before they were added to the team list.
No sport was not indicated in the final violation.
South Carolina also released its drug-testing results from Jan. 1 through June 30. The athletic department said it found seven positives for marijuana use and 12 for approved prescription medications among the 530 tests given. There were no positives for drugs of abuse or alcohol, according to the results.
