Sampson, Indiana meeting with NCAA

SEATTLE (AP) - Former Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson and several
school administrators are in a closed-door hearing before a NCAA
panel that will determine whether Sampson violated recruiting
rules.

School officials are trying to avoid additional penalties beyond
the scholarship and recruiting restrictions the school imposed when
the allegations came to light last year. IU athletic director Rick
Greenspan and current Hoosiers coach Tom Crean are among those
attending.

No one would comment to the media as they arrived Friday at a
Seattle hotel.

The NCAA accuses Sampson of providing false and misleading
information to investigators about more than 100 impermissible
calls and knowingly violating NCAA recruiting restrictions imposed
because of a previous phone-call scandal at Oklahoma.

The hearing is expected to last all day and could stretch into
Saturday. A decision likely won't be known for at least six weeks.
