Kanter will sit while NCAA determines status
Question of the Day
LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Kentucky freshman center Enes Kanter must sit out all team activities until the NCAA determines his amateur status.
The 6-foot-11 Kanter played on a club team in Turkey in 2008-09. The NCAA is reviewing whether Kanter received any extraordinary benefits during his time with the team, which would be a violation of the NCAA’s amateur policy.
Kanter had received a 45-day grace period that allowed him to practice while the team prepared for an exhibition trip to Canada in August. The school then received an extension that ran out Thursday.
NCAA spokesman Chuck Wynne says Kanter is prohibited from practicing until his situation is resolved.
Kentucky coach John Calipari has said he believes Kanter will get to play for the Wildcats this season.
