Leslie to miss 3 games for improper benefits

BY foxsports • November 11, 2011

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.
