“Sev­eral months ago, we be­gan plan­ning a set of com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives with our bas­ket­ball pro­gram. One was aimed at lo­cal high schools. This took con­sid­er­able ef­forts from our depart­ment, the of­fice of UNM ad­mis­sions, and many oth­ers. Our NCAA com­pli­ance of­fice ap­proved this par­tic­u­lar set of events and were sup­port­ive of this en­deavor. We re­ceived a phone call to­day from an in­sti­tu­tion with con­cerns over the com­pli­ance of th­ese prac­tices. Thus, we are cur­rently re­view­ing if they will con­tinue. Thank you to all the peo­ple that put in their time and en­ergy to get this off the ground. Also, thank you to New Mex­ico State Univer­sity for mak­ing the ef­fort to apprise us of this po­ten­tial con­cern. We will in­form the com­mu­nity as soon as we are aware of its fu­ture sta­tus.”
