List of vacated and forfeited games in college basketball

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of games ordered vacated or forfeited by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in college basketball.[1] The list does not include forfeits imposed by individual conferences.[2]

As a private association, the NCAA only changes its own records to reflect forfeits or vacations that its own Committee on Infractions has ordered, and not for sanctions imposed by individual conferences.[3]

Most games vacated and forfeited[edit]

In some cases, NCAA sanctions covered multiple years. The incidents resulting in the largest number of vacated and/or forfeited games are as follows:

  1. Michigan: 113 regular season and tournament wins and 4 tournament losses vacated covering six of eight seasons between 1992 and 1999. See University of Michigan basketball scandal (also [1]).
  2. Ohio State: 82 regular season and tournament wins and 31 regular season and tournament losses vacated covering four seasons from 1999 to 2002. See Jim O'Brien and NCAA Violations.
  3. Fresno State: 49 regular season wins and 1 tournament loss vacated covering three seasons from 1999 to 2001. See Tarkanian and the NCAA.
  4. St. John's: 46 regular season wins and 1 tournament loss vacated covering four seasons from 2001 to 2004.
  5. New Mexico State: 40 regular season and tournament wins and 24 regular season and tournament losses vacated covering 5 seasons 1992–1994 and 1997–1998.
  6. Memphis: 38 regular season and tournament wins vacated from the 2008 season. See John Calipari era.
  7. FIU: 32 regular season wins vacated covering four seasons from 2003 to 2006.
  8. Louisiana–Lafayette: 31 wins and 2 tournament losses vacated from the 2004 and 2005 seasons. See Major violations.
  9. California: 28 regular season wins forfeited and 1 regular season loss vacated from the 1995 and 1996 season.
  10. Georgia Southern: Vacated 27 regular season wins from the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
  11. Minnesota: 24 regular season wins forfeited from the 1977 season.
  12. Florida State: Vacated 22 regular season and NIT wins.
  13. Southern California: 21 regular season wins and 1 tournament loss vacated from the 2008 season. See University of Southern California athletics scandal.
  14. Arizona: 19 regular season wins and 1 tournament loss vacated from the 2008 season.
  15. Purdue: 19 regular season and tournament wins and 1 tournament loss vacated from the 1996 season.

In addition to vacating and forfeiting games, the NCAA has the power to issue other forms of sanctions. The harshest sanction is a ban on a school's competing in a sport for at least one year. Sometimes referred to as the NCAA's death penalty, this sanction has been imposed twice against college basketball programs: (1) the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball program for the 1952–53 season; and (2) the Louisiana–Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns men's basketball program (then known as the University of Southwestern Louisiana) for the 1973–74 and 1974–75 seasons.
