The NCAA denounced one of the country's most decorated basketball programs Friday, suspending Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim for nine conference games next year and outlining a decade-long series of violations that included academic misconduct, improper benefits, and drug-policy failures. The governing body, saying the school lost control of its athletic department, placed Syracuse on probation for five years for breaking with the ''most fundamental core values of the NCAA.'' The bulk of the violations concerned athletic department officials interfering with academics and making sure star players stayed eligible. The basketball team must vacate wins in which ineligible players participated. ''The behavior in this case, which placed the desire to achieve success on the basketball court over academic integrity, demonstrated clearly misplaced institutional priorities,'' the NCAA said.
