SMU is expected to learn the results of an NCAA investigation into its men’s basketball program when the governing body announces its findings and possible sanctions Tuesday, a source confirmed to CBS Sports.

The school went before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions in June.

This development — earlier reported by ESPN — could lead to Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown facing a suspension due to a “lack of coach control” charge even if he isn’t directly tied to allegations of academic misconduct. At issue is whether former assistant Ulric Maligi and another person connected to SMU’s program helped former McDonald’s All-American Keith Frazier with coursework, according to Yahoo! Sports. Maligi left SMU last January while Frazier missed the second half of the season after being declared academically ineligible. Frazier is currently on the Mustangs’ roster.

An attempt by CBS Sports to reach Brown for comment wasn’t immediately successful.
