James Wiseman Scores 17 Points After Judge Issues Stay 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Nov 9, 2019 8:19 am

James Wiseman scored 17 points during the Memphis Tigers' 92-46 win over Illinois-Chicago.


Wiseman was ruled ineligible by the NCAA earlier in the day, though a Shelby County judge halted the NCAA's ruling.


The NCAA issued a statement responding to Wiseman playing in the game, writing "The University of Memphis was notified that James Wiseman is likely ineligible. The university chose to play him and ultimately is responsible for ensuring its student-athletes are eligible to play." 


Memphis coach Penny Hardaway provided $11,500 in moving expenses for Wiseman's family to move to Memphis. The NCAA ruled that Hardaway was a booster at the time.


Hardaway had no comment following the game.


Attorneys representing Wiseman intend to have conversations with the NCAA early next week.

I’d still play him and even if the season don’t count ultimately for them, f it.. it will continue to put a spot light on the hypocrisy that’s the NCAA.
