The NCAA has hit Oklahoma State Men's Basketball with a one-year postseason ban, three years of probation, three fewer scholarships, and more as a result of the 2017 FBI probe.
According to the NCAA official release, ''the former Oklahoma State men’s basketball associate head coach violated NCAA ethical conduct rules when he accepted between $18,150 and $22,000 in bribes from two financial advisors to influence student-athletes.''
The Cowboys were a candidate to win the national tournament, specially after recruiting the projected number 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Cade Cunningham.
It shouldn't be a surprise if Cunningham decides to opt out from OSU, and decides to take his talents somewhere else.
“Coaches are entrusted to look after the well-being and best interests of their student-athletes, including during the critical time when student-athletes are making decisions regarding their professional careers,” the committee said in its decision.
