WCC men's, women's basketball seasons canceled

For the second season in a row, there will be no action on the hardwood at Westchester Community College.



The Vikings men's 2015-2016 season is canceled amid an ongoing phony transcript probe. The women's season has been canceled as well.



An ongoing criminal investigation was launched by the state inspector general in 2013 after an anonymous email sent to the National Junior College Athletic Association alleged transcript fraud on the men's team.



The team's assistant coach was fired after school officials reportedly claimed he admitted to doctoring transcripts. Two athletes lost scholarships as a result.



No charges have been filed in the probe so far.
