College of Charleston found using 'improper basketballs'

From Winning Hoops

The Colonial Athletic Association has reversed the outcome of two College of Charleston women's basketball games after discovering the team used "improper basketballs."

According to a report from ESPN, the association would not elaborate on what made the basketballs improper. NCAA rules specify that women's basketballs must have a circumference of no more than 29 inches and no less than 28 1/2 inches. The weight of the ball must be 18 to 20 ounces. A men's basketball is slightly larger and heavier.

College of Charleston used the improper balls in games against William & Mary and UNC-Wilmington in January. The games are not forfeits, but the outcomes have been changed for the purposes of seeding the conference tournament. There were no reports of additional sanctions against the college.

"The College of Charleston regrets that this unintentional situation occurred," College of Charleston Athletics Director Matt Roberts said in a news release. "We accept full responsibility for what happened and appreciate the efforts of the conference office to find an amicable and fair resolution to this matter. We fully support the decision of the commissioner as it relates to the two games in question."
