MORAGA, Calif. (AP) - The NCAA has placed Saint Mary's on four years' probation for ``failure to monitor its men's basketball program,'' reducing scholarships after it says the perennial mid-major power committed several recruiting violations.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions also said Friday that Gaels coach Randy Bennett ``acted unethically in his recruitment of international prospects'' and ``failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance.'' Bennett will not be allowed to recruit off campus and will serve a five-game suspension next season.

Saint Mary's will still be allowed to participate in its conference tournament and the NCAA tournament, but can't play in preseason or in-season tournaments. The program also will have a reduction in scholarships from 13 to 11 for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.
