HONOLULU (AP) - Brigham Young University-Hawaii has been placed
on three years probation by the NCAA for failing to monitor certain
aspects of its athletics program.

A spokesman for the university didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.

The NCAA Division II Committee on Infraction says BYU-Hawaii failed to monitor its athletics program in four specific areas pertaining to student-athlete eligibility from the 2005-06 academic year through 2007-08.

For instance, the committee says it found the university didn't apply a required rule when certifying that eight transfer student-athletes were eligible for competition. The eight participated in various sports - softball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, and men's tennis.
