The key phrase in that quote is “based on the information available,” as the NCAA, which lacks subpoena power in its investigations, apparently didn’t receive cooperation from either Thomas or the jeweler (as was both of their rights).

And the NCAA can only shrug its shoulders because no one wanted to talk to them.
