The Saint Mary’s men’s basketball program has been under NCAA investigation this year for potential recruiting violations, multiple sources told ESPN.com.

What specifically the Gaels are under investigation for is unclear. Multiple attempts to reach Saint Mary’s coach Randy Bennett and athletic director Mark Orr have gone unanswered.

A source told ESPN.com Friday that an email was sent Friday from the president’s office to the Saint Mary’s board of regents acknowledging that the college was cooperating with an ongoing NCAA investigation into the men’s basketball program.

Mike McAlpin, Saint Mary’s director of media relations, acknowledged to USA Today that the school is in contact with the NCAA.

“Saint Mary’s College and the NCAA have been working cooperatively on a matter related to the men’s basketball program, McAlpin told the newspaper in an email Friday afternoon. To respect the integrity of that process, the college will have no further comment at this time.”

The NCAA has declined comment.
