Oklahoma State Given 1-Year NCAA Tourney Ban

The NCAA Committee on Infractions on Friday placed Oklahoma State’s men’s basketball program on three years of probation and banned the Cowboys from playing in postseason tournaments next season.

The penalties are the result of a Level I violation involving former associate head coach Lamont Evans, who was sentenced in June 2019 to three months in prison for accepting between $18,150 and $22,000 in bribes to steer players from South Carolina and Oklahoma State to certain agents and financial advisers.

The NCAA also hit Evans with a 10-year show-cause penalty. During that period, any NCAA member school employing him must restrict him from any athletically related duties unless it shows cause why the restrictions should not apply.
