The NCAA found no lack of institutional control in a 15-month investigation of the Oklahoma men’s basketball program, according to a report that was released on Thursday.

OU officials have asked the NCAA to place the men’s basketball program on two more years probation and vacate all wins from the 2009-10 season for the two major rules violations.

The Sooners also proposed taking away one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days during the upcoming academic year since the program was already on probation involving hundreds of impermissible recruiting phone calls by former OU coach Kelvin Sampson.
