LOS ANGELES (AP) -Dwight Lewis, Mike Gerrity, Alex Stepheson and the rest of Southern California's basketball team couldn't figure out why they were being summoned to an early morning meeting with coach Kevin O'Neill.
When their cell phones lit up with text messages telling them to report to Galen Center on Sunday - an off day - the players figured one of them had gotten in trouble or said the wrong thing to the media.
The news O'Neill delivered was much worse.
He told them the university had imposed sanctions on the team for recruiting violations involving former player O.J. Mayo, including a ban on postseason play this year.
