ANCHORAGE -

An NCAA investigation has revealed that former Seawolf women's basketball coach Tim Moser and former volunteer assistant Elisha Harris committed an NCAA rules violation during the 2011-12 season.

According to UAA, Moser promised two players full scholarships even though that would have put the program over the NCAA limit of 10.  The university says Moser and Harris then supplemented partial scholarships with over $7,000 in a non university funds without the knowledge of the players or the school.  Moser resigned from his position at UAA following that season.

UAA self-reported the violation to the NCAA Committee on Infractions and although the women's basketball program will not face a ban from postseason play, the team has been issued a list of sanctions:

-Two years probation from May 2, 2014 through May 1, 2016

-Vacating 15 wins from that 2011-12 season in which a student athlete played while receiving improper benefits.  UAA advanced to the Division II Elite Eight with a record of 30-5.

-A reduction of .74 scholarships from the maximum allowable 10 during the 2015-16 academic year.

-Public reprimand and censure

-A $5,000 fine.

The NCAA also looked into the provision of meals, entertainment, and transportation to players during a road trip early in that 2011-12 season.  That infraction was committed by a booster, and was considered secondary.
