Josh Selby to Miss Nine Games

by November 21, 2010

Seems like Selby’s situation was finally cleared up. News comes via Kansas’ student newspaper: “Selby, the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2010, must miss nine games, or 30 percent of the Kansas season, per NCAA rules. That includes the three games he has already missed. ‘I think it’s a fair ruling,’ coach Bill Self said. ‘The rules are black and white.’ He must also pay back money received in impermissible benefits, but the Kansas Athletics and NCAA press releases differ on the amount. According to Kansas’ press release, the amount is $4,607.58, while the NCAA’s press release dictates a $5,757.58 fine. Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said Kansas’ number was the correct figure. Either way, the money Selby pays back will go to a charity of his choosing. Kansas is able to appeal the ruling, but Self said it would not.”
