Over a three-month investigation, four sources of Syracuse men’s basketball program told Yahoo! Sports that at least 10 players since 2001 have been using banned recreational substances.
The source also said that those 10 players who have tested positive have been allowed to practice and play in games when they should have been suspended for the drug violations. Syracuse failed to do two things when it came to the test and results. They one, needed to properly count the tests and they needed to keep ineligible players from participating in the athletics.
Now with the current allegations, Syracuse can penalized all the way back to 2001 and even the 2002-03 national championship season can be counted as well. The NCAA and Boeheim has declined to comment. With so much at stake it makes you wonder how many other championship schools have this issue?
If the statements are found true, Syracuse could face being charged with lack of institutional control for failing to adhere to their own drug policy.
