COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Admitting it found NCAA violations in its men's basketball program dating to 2011, Missouri on Wednesday banned itself from the postseason this year and said it is vacating all 23 wins from the 2013-14 season.
The NCAA is still investigating and Missouri said it was working with the organization in hopes of limiting the punishment to its self-imposed sanctions.
Missouri was 23-12 in 2013-14, Frank Haith's final season before leaving for Tulsa. The Tigers won just nine games last season under new coach Kim Anderson, who did not immediately comment on the findings.
Besides the postseason ban, the school has stripped itself of one scholarship this season and a second scholarship no later than the 2017-18 season, plus has restricted recruiting through 2016-17.
