NCAA puts Henderson State on probation


ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - The NCAA has placed Henderson State on two years of probation and fined the school $2,500 for rules violations that included a coach offering a loan to a prospective athlete, exceeding phone contact limits and holding impermissible tryouts and practices.

The Division II school in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, self-imposed several penalties in 2012 after an inquiry into possible violations. Those included a loss of nearly half the women's basketball program's 10 scholarships for the 2013-14 academic year and limiting recruiting activities on and off campus.

Henderson State's self-imposed probationary period ended May 1, but the NCAA extended that through July 2016. It also issued show-cause orders for two of the school's former head coaches. The NCAA didn't name them.

Henderson State is a member of the Great American Conference.
