LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky is asking the
NCAA to take a second look at the eligibility of freshman center
The school and the NCAA put out a joint statement Friday saying
Kentucky has asked for an opportunity to submit additional
information about Kanter's eligibility.
The NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff ruled the 6-foot-11
Kanter permanently ineligible last month because he received
benefits above his actual and necessary expenses while playing for
a club basketball team in Turkey.
The school appealed the decision before opting to ask for the
chance to offer new information. Kanter is allowed to practice with
the team while the situation remains in review.
