    The Arizona Wildcats men’s basketball program has self-imposed a one-year postseason ban, per release.

    Here’s the full statement from the University of Arizona’s athletic department (via Tucson.com):

    “The University of Arizona is self-imposing a one-year postseason ban on the UA Men’s Basketball program as a proactive measure in its ongoing NCAA enforcement process. The decision is an acknowledgement that the NCAA’s investigation revealed that certain former members of the men’s basketball staff displayed serious lapses in judgment and a departure from the University’s expectation of honest and ethical behavior. It is also in accord with the penalty guidelines of the NCAA for the type of violations involved. This decision also reinforces the institution’s commitment to accountability and integrity as well as serving the best long-term interests of the university and the men’s basketball program.”

    The news comes after Arizona was charged with nine violations, five of which were Level I, in its Notice of Allegations by the NCAA Committee back in October. The Level I charges include a lack of institutional control and failure to monitor by the university and a lack of head coach control by Sean Miller.

    Arizona is 7-1 on the season and is coming off an 88-74 win against Colorado on Monday. The Wildcats play Washington State on Saturday.
