NCAA closes book on Bledsoe

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA "plans no further action"
regarding an investigation into the eligibility of former Kentucky
guard Eric Bledsoe.
NCAA spokesman Chuck Wynne said Tuesday in an e-mail the
"initial-eligibility decision stands" after school district
officials in Birmingham, Ala., decided to allow Bledsoe to keep a
grade that helped make him eligible.
Superintendent Craig Witherspoon says a teacher claims Bledsoe
completed makeup work to justify a higher grade in an algebra
course during the 2008-2009 school year. The mark was switched from
an "C" to an "A."
Witherspoon says an investigation found no documentation to
justify the improvement. But, he says, it didn't prove the change
was improper, either.
Bledsoe is now with the Los Angeles Clippers.
