NCAA fines Seawolf women’s basketball program

By KTVA Sports 2:37 PM May 2, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

The NCAA handed down a variety of penalties Friday following a lengthy investigation into violations by the University of Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball program.

The investigation found Tim Moser, a former coach, conspired with a volunteer assistant coach to pay student-athletes — a direct violation of NCAA policy, according to a statement released by UAA officials Friday. While Moser resigned from his position in 2012 and committed the infraction without the knowledge of the school or students, UAA still faces a variety of penalties for the offenses.

The university — which self-reported the violations — is now subject to public reprimand and censure, two years of probation, a $5,000 fine, a reduction in the amount of scholarship money available to athletes and an external audit of the UAA athletics program. The NCAA also investigated transportation, meals and entertainment provided to student-athletes during a 2011 trip to the East Coast, but categorized those violations as a secondary infraction.

“We’ve been working with the NCAA since July 2012 on this investigation,” said Chancellor Tom Case in a written statement. “As soon as UAA became aware of this violation, we reported it; we take this very seriously. Our goal — always — is to maintain a safe, honorable and competitive athletics program for our student-athletes, and abiding by the regulations set forth by the NCAA contributes to that goal.”
