Iowa State no longer under investigation
The NCAA's investigation into violations at Iowa State is finally over, according to NBC Sports.
The Cyclones' basketball program will face no additional penalties on top of a two-year probation period after working their way through numerous self-imposed recruiting restrictions.
Nearly 1,500 impermissible calls and texts were dug up between 2008 and 2011 and the case was deemed major by the NCAA. Some of the violations were traced back to clerical errors while others aren't even considered illegal anymore.
Iowa State started investigating itself back in April 2011 when head coach Fred Hoiberg saw then-graduate assistant Lefty Moore at a game that Hoiberg's son was playing in. Hoiberg soon learned that Moore was speaking with players that ISU was recruiting resulting in an audit being launched.
