The California men's basketball team has self-imposed sanctions on the program for violating rules about phone calls to recruits.

The school released a statement Saturday saying officials quickly reported the infractions to the NCAA and Pac-10 as soon as they were discovered and sanctioned the individuals involved.

On Friday, Jeff Goodman and Thayer Evans of first reported that Mike Montgomery and members of his coaching staff appeared in front of the NCAA's Committee on Infractions in Indianapolis.

The school says internal and external investigations have determined the violations from 2008 were not intentional.


Because the case is in front of the NCAA, the school says it has no additional comment.
