COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Coastal Carolina reported violations regarding its men’s basketball team to the NCAA last summer.

A statement from the university to The Associated Press on Friday said the allegations were brought to the school’s attention before the season began and President David DeCenzo ordered them turned over to the NCAA.

The New York Times reported the focus of the NCAA’s investigation is possible illegal benefits that former player Marcus Macellari said were given to other players.

Coastal Carolina’s leading scorer, Desmond Holloway, was indefinitely suspended this month while the NCAA looked into his eligibility. The Chanticleers (25-4) close the regular season at Charleston Southern on Saturday.
