Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has been put on four years' probation and banned from the postseason in volleyball and men's tennis for recruiting violations and using an ineligible athlete.

The NCAA sanctions announced Thursday also include scholarship
reductions in those two sports and recruiting restrictions in men's
basketball, which was cited for making impermissible phone calls to
recruits.

The one-year postseason bans include the upcoming volleyball
season and the 2010 men's tennis season.

The NCAA says A&M-Corpus Christi let a volleyball player compete
during her sixth year, a year beyond the five-year period allowed.
The school also was accused of giving a men's tennis player $1,500
in impermissible financial aid.
