The NCAA has finished its inquiry into a 2009 jewelry purchase totaling nearly $100,000 by former Duke basketball player Lance Thomas and found no wrongdoing. There will be no disciplinary action against the school. "The NCAA has found no evidence of a rules violation in this situation based on the information available, and both the NCAA and Duke consider the matter closed," said a university statement released by associate athletic director Jon Jackson. A lawsuit made public in September brought attention to Thomas's Dec. 21, 2009, purchase of $97,800 worth of custom jewelry from Manhattan-based Rafaello and Co.
I remember buying $100K worth of jewelry as a college student. Nothing suspicious about that. Happens all the time. I've heard work study pays very well now.
Here's a link with more info, sounds like they just couldn't get any information from any of the parties.

Haha .... the Nzaa COI doesn't find it hard to believe that a student-athlete (lol) could make a $100,000 jewelry purchase without any improper assistance during the season that he helped Duke win a national title but ......
"this committee finds it hard to believe that the step-father of student-athlete #1 would fight weekday rush hour traffic to make the long drive from San Diego to USC's Los Angeles area campus and back just hours later, knowing full well that he would see his stepson the next day in Berkeley, Ca., the day before the USC's game on Saturday."
