From the AP: NCAA sanctions Missouri Western women’s hoops
The NCAA put the women’s basketball program at Missouri Western on probation for two years and threw out some 50 victories Wednesday as punishment for allowing an ineligible athlete to play for two seasons that included a conference championship for the Division II program.

Besides the ineligible athlete, whose play was deemed a major violation, the NCAA also found that a former student-athlete received extra benefits from a former coach, a secondary infraction.
