The NCAA has placed The WSU Shockers on a one year probation and assessed a $5,000.00 fine to the program. The Shockers will also vacate a number of games in which the ineligible players participated.
Charges stem from improper use by players of an assistant coaches VIP account to purchase clothing and other items from the schools apparel provider. Using the account is considered to be an extra benefit to the players and is not permitted under NCAA rules.
