Central Community College's Columbus campus will forfeit 20 of this season's 21 wins because one of the players on the basketball team was ineligible.

Vashun Pinson signed two letters of intent last year, so he wasn't eligible to play this season under National Junior College Athletic Association rules.

Pinson pledged to play for Joliet Junior College several months before signing with Central. Athletic Director Jack Gutierrez says the school only discovered the problem last weekend after Pinson had some behavior problems.

The school only looked into Pinson's background after he was dismissed from the team for violating a school policy.

The Raiders' record for the season so far will change from 21-5 to 1-25 after the self-imposed penalty of forfeiting games.
