MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Several athletic programs from the state
of Alabama were penalized because of subpar academic scores,
including Auburn's men's basketball team.

The NCAA took away a scholarship from Jeff Lebo's team because
of scores released Wednesday. Auburn also lost scholarships in
men's track and swimming.

UAB was the only Football Bowl Subdivision school to have
practice times cut in both football and men's basketball because of
subpar academic scores.

Jacksonville State, meanwhile, could face a postseason ban in
football but has requested a waiver. The NCAA has not announced
when a decision will be made.

JSU has lost a scholarship and practice time in men's
basketball.
