The University of Louisville met with the NCAA’s committee on infractions on Thursday in Cincinnati. The hearing lasted nearly eleven hours in Westin Hotel’s Presidential Ballroom III.

Although this is the first step in the final step regarding the NCAA’s case against the UofL men’s basketball program, no resolutions were expected to come today. Following the hearing UofL athletic director Tom Jurich said he expects an NCAA decision in approximately six to eight weeks.

UofL released this statement on Thursday evening.

A group of officials from the University of Louisville met with the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Thursday concerning inappropriate behavior that took place in Billy Minardi Hall several years ago. The following is a statement from UofL Interim President Dr. Greg Postel following the hearing:

“We anticipated and received a full and fair review of the facts in the case today by the Committee on Infractions. We had the opportunity to present the information as we wished. It is anticipated that the Committee on Infractions will inform the institution on the specific findings and penalties in approximately six to eight weeks. We look forward to the final resolution of this matter.”

    I bet they said we still do not see that you have control of your situation as a player gets charged with possession. Smh

      Absolutely impossible to keep control of a kid 24/7! Just not realistic. Never has been, but ..that’s the ncaa. Btw, I root for any young man, especially a uofl player, but Jaylon hasn’t impressed me since he’s been here! Gimme Anas and Spalding any day. Not just saying that because of the incident either.

      There’s a reason he got out of Michigan, and it’s the lack of desire he has to play. There’s No reason a man with the size and talents he has, doesn’t avg a double double.

      Lets hope the decision is out soon & UL can look toward a good season ahead! As a fan I am ready for this to be over & the woman who wrote this nasty book will go to jail for pimping out her underage daughters!
