SAN DIEGO (AP) - The NCAA says it has concluded its review of the Brandon Johnson game-fixing case and will not impose sanctions against USD or its basketball program.
The NCAA accepted USD's submission of a secondary violation and says it found no improper conduct by any member of the university's staff or any other athletes.
Johnson and nine others were charged in federal court with running a sports betting business to fix West Coast Conference games.
He pleaded guilty Nov. 16 to soliciting a team member to influence the outcome of a game through a bribe. He began serving a six-month prison sentence on May 31.
Former USD assistant coach T.J. Brown also pleaded guilty in November and was sentenced to a year in federal prison.
