SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State athletic officials say they've been notified by the NCAA that allegations made against the men's basketball program were not substantiated.

In September, CBS Sports, citing unidentified sources, reported that SDSU's program was under investigation by the NCAA for potential rules violations that included possible improper benefits to recruits.

Says coach Steve Fisher: "These types of allegations are not uncommon in major college athletics. What is uncommon is that they ever come out in the public."

Fisher has turned the Aztecs from a moribund program to a perennial NCAA Tournament team.
