Arizona Basketball’s troubles with the NCAA aren’t going away anytime soon.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde, the Arizona Wildcats received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA this past Thursday, however, the school has declined to release the contents of the allegations to the public, “in order to protect the integrity of the ongoing enforcement process.”

“The University of Arizona has received a Notice of Allegations (NOA) issued by the NCAA enforcement staff,” Arizona said in a statement released on Friday. “However, in order to protect the integrity of the ongoing enforcement process, the University is not releasing the NOA at this time.”

Yes, you read that correctly. Arizona used the word integrity to describe their ongoing corruption suit.

Since 2017, Arizona has been at the forefront of a federal investigation that includes wiretapped conversations, discussions of tens of thousands of dollars, and the possibility of head coach Sean Miller losing his job. Miller declined to comment when asked about the situation during a Thursday press conference.

Thus far, of the dozen programs that were initially under investigation, only Oklahoma State has received any sort of punishment: a one-year postseason ban. According to Forde, only Creighton and Auburn have declined to publicly acknowledge that the allegations exist while seven others have publicly addressed them. Alabama and LSU have still yet to receive its notice from the NCAA.

Forde stated in his post that it is not known at this time if the school will eventually release the NOA, or if they’ll even see a significant punishment any time soon. He reported that other Universities are becoming frustrated by the NCAA’s lack of urgency to figure this mess out.

This could drag on for a longggg time.

    I am sure Forde is pissed off because it wasn’t Kentucky. Arizona and integrity never belong in the same article.

    To stress the corruptIon of the NCAA, UL was hiring strippers and whores in 2012. Nothing has happened to them.

    Arizona is a public university. Won’t be long before some newspaper makes an open records request for that NOA!

    Funny,
    Looks like the NCAA is dragging their feet so that these universities can carry on recruiting with a business as usual culture. Zona wants to say Mym’s the word because they are in the important and extreme recruiting phase right now. How dare the NCAA do this now!
    And Will Wade and his bosses are giving the NCAA the finger. AND…. its funny how Forde never uttered a word about UL. He’s sooooo objective! Pffft!
