2013 national title at risk as Louisville to appeal NCAA penalties

5:45 PM ET

Louisville could lose its 2013 NCAA title, and Cardinals coach Rick Pitino will be suspended for the first five ACC games in 2017-18 for failing to monitor his program during an alleged sex-for-pay scandal, the Division I Committee on Infractions announced Thursday.

Louisville announced it will appeal the ruling.

The NCAA decision opens the strong possibility that Louisville could lose its 2012-13 national championship after the committee issued “a vacation of basketball records in which student-athletes competed while ineligible from December 2010 and July 2014.” The NCAA said the school must provide a list of games impacted by the decision within 45 days, and if ineligible players participated, the school could have to remove its banner and erase the title from its record books.

To date, no national championship has ever been vacated in men’s Division I basketball (only Final Four appearances), according to ESPN Stats Information.
