YPSILANTI, MICH. (AP) - Eastern Michigan has put its women’s basketball program on two years of probation and reported several violations tied to practice and recruiting to the NCAA.

The school said Monday that the violations involved exceeding practice time limits, improper involvement by coaches in voluntary practices and allowing recruits into organized workouts.

Coach AnnMarie Gilbert has been suspended for one month without pay and her salary frozen for the current season. She also was given a letter of reprimand, and must attend mandatory counseling and a NCAA rules seminar.

Three assistant coaches and an assistant athletic trainer also were disciplined.

The school’s report was filed Friday with the NCAA.
