KU officials meet with NCAA Infractions Committee

August 13, 2006


All Kansas University officials can do now is wait to see what the NCAA decides.

Representatives from KU met with an NCAA Committee on Infractions for six and a half hours on Sunday in Baltimore to give their side of the story on 11 violations that were self-reported last summer.

"I want to thank the committee for giving us a fair, thorough hearing," KU Chancellor Robert Hemenway said in a released statement. "The committee was cordial, inquisitive and very business-like. It was clear they had prepared well.

"We reaffirmed to the committee our absolute commitment to NCAA rules compliance. We felt the committee asked good questions, took their time, listened well and allowed us to fully explain our answers.

"I don't think it would be productive to speculate on how the committee reacted to our presentation. The focus now is that this chapter is over. We can now move forward, confident that the changes we have made in the area of compliance will help prevent us from going through this again."
