NCAA Rejects Appeals

September 18, 2002|From Times Wire Services

Kentucky and Alabama lost again Tuesday when the NCAA rejected appeals to reduce sanctions against the programs because of recruiting violations.

An infractions appeals committee upheld a one-year postseason ban placed on Kentucky. It was one of several penalties levied against the school in January.

Alabama sought restoration of six scholarships and its bowl eligibility. The NCAA placed Alabama on five years' probation Feb. 1, tacking on the six scholarship cuts to the university's self-imposed reduction of 15, and banning the team from participating in a bowl game for two years.
