NCAA denies BYU’s appeal of sanctions

The NCAA has upheld sanctions against BYU’s basketball program, which was forced to vacate 47 wins as a result of an improper-benefits case involving former player Nick Emery. BYU’s appeal of penalties announced in November was denied by the NCAA’s Infractions Appeals Committee on Wednesday. The NCAA said a player, later revealed by BYU to be Emery, received more than $12,000 in benefits from four boosters.
