AU, UAB and JSU penalized

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Several athletic programs from the state of Alabama were penalized because of subpar academic scores, including Auburn's men's basketball team.

The NCAA took away a scholarship from Jeff Lebo's team because of scores released Wednesday.

Auburn also lost scholarships in men's track and swimming.

UAB was the only Football Bowl Subdivision school to have practice times cut in both football and men's basketball because of subpar academic scores.

Jacksonville State, meanwhile, could face a postseason ban in football but has requested a waiver.

The NCAA has not announced when a decision will be made.

JSU has lost a scholarship and practice time in men's basketball.
