Iowa Junior College Forfeits Remaining 12 Games

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — The Southeastern Community College men’s basketball team is forfeiting the season’s remaining 12 games because 10 players have been dismissed for violating college and athletic department rules.
The Hawk Eye of Burlington reports that two other players have been declared academically ineligible.
That left only two players from the 14-man roster.
The team had gone 13-3 so far this year.
Terry Carroll is the men’s coach and the school’s athletic director, and he says the players violated the school’s athletic code of conduct.
In a statement, Carroll says “these have been good kids who made some incredibly irresponsible and poor choices.”
Because of confidentiality and student privacy laws, the college would not disclose details.
College President Beverly Simone says she supports Carroll’s decisions.
