*USC has announced it has implemented self-imposed sanctions on its men’s basketball program for NCAA rule violations related to former player O.J. Mayo.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the team, which includes Percy “Master P” Miller’s son Romeo Miller, will be banned from the 2010 postseason, including participation in the Pacific 10 Conference basketball tournament.

The Trojans will also lose one scholarship for this season and next, plus its coaches face limitations to recruiting.

Southern Cal has also said it will vacate all wins from the 2007-2008 regular season, when Mayo played for the team, and return to the NCAA the money it received through the Pac-10 Conference from its participation in the NCAA tournament that year.

In a news release, the school said the sanctions were imposed “because of Mayo’s involvement with Rodney Guillory, whom under NCAA rules became a USC booster because of his role in Mayo’s recruitment.”
