COLUMBIA, MO. ‘Missouri athletics director Jim Sterk wrote a recent letter to former Mizzou tutor-turned-NCAA whistle blower Yolanda Kumar saying that MU’s investigation revealed she provided MU athletes impermissible academic benefits, as she has claimed publicly since the fall of 2016.

In March 2017, Kumar told the Post-Dispatch she met with NCAA and Mizzou officials in January of that year and admitted she helped 42 MU athletes commit varying degrees of academic fraud. Kumar later offered to sell her documented evidence online so she could pay off her tuition bills. Last year, Kumar said she told the NCAA she completed assignments for students from all sports but only completed courses or took exams for football players and men’s basketball players.

2018 NCAA tournament timeline of the wildest college basketball season ever

After being given a technical foul while coaching a game Friday, LaVar Ball says the woman who gave him the foul was trying to make a name for herself. (1:04)

Most college basketball seasons span about five months: the beginning of November until the beginning of April. If you want to stretch the start a few weeks back to the beginning of practice, that’s fine, too.

But the 2017-18 college basketball season wasn’t your usual college basketball season. It lived several lives over nearly 10 months.

It began way back in early June, when Ohio State announced a last-minute news conference: Thad Matta was stepping down as the coach of the Buckeyes. Matta choked up at the conference, and athletic director Gene Smith said that part of the reason was Ohio State wasn’t “winning the recruiting battles.” It’s clear this wasn’t Matta’s idea. Shortly thereafter, the Buckeyes tabbed Butler’s Chris Holtmann as Matta’s replacement.
