Update: Kentucky is back on top!

Happy Wednesday, BBN!

The NCAA’s Independent Accountability Resolution Process (IARP) is set to release its infractions report on the Kansas men’s basketball program today.

This decision will mark the end of the final infractions case from the 2017 federal investigation into college basketball corruption.

Kansas faced five severe NCAA violations, including charges of lacking institutional control and allegations against coach Bill Self. Violations involved payments from Adidas representatives to individuals linked to former players Billy Preston and Silvio De Sousa.

While Kansas admitted to some misconduct, it only suspended Self and assistant coach Townsend for a few games, unlike other implicated schools that dismissed their coaches.

Historically, the IARP hasn’t barred programs from postseason play, with a few exceptions. For Kansas, postseason eligibility is vital as they are seen as potential national championship contenders.

The school might also face financial sanctions, recruiting restrictions, and the potential nullification of wins.

We’ll keep you updated on the ruling as soon as it’s released.
