In the aftermath of the arrest of former Oklahoma State's men's basketball assistant Lamont Evans as part of a federal bribery investigation, the program must now turn over any and all documents relating to NCAA violations, dating back October 1, 2014, to a NY grand jury.

The subpoena is far-reaching in the types of records being demanded, requesting emails, text messages, cellular phone records, social media messages, computer records and a host of other documents and electronic records covering the time period from January 1, 2014 to the present.
