Central Florida Football, Basketball Receive One-Year Postseason Bans, According To Report

After the University of Central Florida released self-imposed sanctions in response to recruiting violation allegations, the NCAA has reportedly added to the sanctions with a punishment of their own. According to Andy Katz of ESPN, both the football and men's basketball teams at UCF will be banned from postseason play for the 2012-13 year.

The UCF football team finished 5-7 during the 2011 season and did not qualify for a bowl game, but the 2010 team did participate in the Liberty Bowl in which they earned the school's first ever bowl victory.

The Knights men's basketball team will not only be banned from any NCAA tournament play, but also from Conference USA in which the UCF team was considered a favorite to contend for the conference championship.

Among the self-imposed penalties implemented by UCF in February was a three-year probation and a vacation of all wins for the men's basketball team between the 2008-09 and 2010-11 seasons.
