Leslie to miss 3 games for improper benefits

North Carolina State forward C.J. Leslie will miss three games

after he and a relative received $410 in improper benefits.

The school says Leslie borrowed a car from a friend and former

N.C. State student for about a week after a wreck in May. The

school says the former student paid $260 for apartment application

fees for Leslie’s half-brother. The school reported the violations

to the NCAA, which investigated with the school and determined the

value of the borrowed car as $150.

The school also says the former student also provided $1,349 in

improper benefits to a former student-athlete. The school says it

won’t comment on the issue, which is being reviewed by the

NCAA.

The news came shortly before coach Mark Gottfried’s debut

against UNC Asheville on Friday night.
