State report: Clemson self-reports NCAA violations involving track program
CLEMSON — Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich announced Monday that Clemson submitted a letter to the NCAA last week, self-reporting violations related to men’s and women’s track programs.
Lawrence Johnson, director of the Clemson track and field and cross country programs, resigned earlier this month.
The letter “identified a summary of violations, along with the prescribed penalty and corrective measures taken by the institution,” according to Clemson.
Clemson contracted a third party to review the program after learning of “inappropriate conduct” in September.
Clemson officials will not comment on the infractions until there is a resolution.
Charleston Southern sophomore guard Saah Nimley was named the Big South Conference men’s basketball player of the week for games Jan. 21-27.
Nimley averaged 24.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4 assists in leading the Buccaneers to two Big South road wins last week.
Charleston Southern was picked second in the Big South Conference preseason poll in voting by the league’s coaches.
The Buccaneers, last season’s Big South tournament runner-up, received 69 points and two first-place votes in finishing behind reigning Big South champion Coastal Carolina in the annual preseason poll. The Chanticleers had seven first-place votes and 78 points.
