Investigation involves assistant coach Dollar

SEATTLE -- The NCAA has scheduled a telephone news
conference Thursday to discuss its conclusions in an investigation
of Washington men's basketball recruiting violations.

The case involved assistant coach Cameron Dollar, said Dan
Lepse, a UW athletics spokesman.

In October, UW athletic director Barbara Hedges suspended Dollar
without pay for one month for a series of recruiting violations.

Dollar was banned from off-campus recruiting for the remainder
of the 2002-2003 academic school year and had his pay reduced by 20
percent until April 2003 for about two dozen violations that
included improper evaluations of prospective recruits, phone calls
and face-to-face meetings with prospects and their family members.

The suspension and pay cut cost Dollar $13,334.
