It sounds like Memphis is going to be in a lot of trouble after deciding to play James Wiseman in tonight’s game vs. UIC.
On Friday, it was announced that James Wiseman was ineligible due to Penny Hardaway assisting Wiseman and his family in their move to Memphis in 2018. The NCAA deemed Hardaway a booster.
Despite the notice, Memphis moved forward with playing Wiseman in Friday’s game.
During the game, the NCAA released the following statement.
