HOUSTON (AP) — The NCAA banned Texas Southern’s basketball program from the 2012-13 postseason and the football program from the 2013 and 2014 postseason, citing recruiting violations, academic issues, the use of ineligible athletes and exceeding scholarship limits.

The Division I Infractions Committee outlined widespread violations, spanning 13 sports over a seven-year period in a report released Tuesday. Other penalties include five years’ probation, scholarship limitations in football and basketball and the vacation of all team records from the 2006-10 in all sports, and including the 2010-11 records for football and women’s soccer. In 2010, Texas Southern won its first SWAC football championship since 1968.

The NCAA cited Texas Southern for “lack of institutional control” and noted the school as a “double repeat violator.”
