NCAA: KU's Selby Suspended Nine Games
11/20/2010
 

The NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff has ruled University of Kansas men’s basketball freshman Josh Selby must sit out nine regular season games and repay $5,757.58 in impermissible benefits to the charity of his choice.

 

The university declared the student-athlete ineligible when it found Selby and his family accepted impermissible benefits prior to him signing an athletic aid agreement to play basketball for Kansas. The university can appeal the decision to the Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee.

 

“Our members have made it clear that student-athletes who receive impermissible benefits must be held accountable,” stated Kevin Lennon, vice president for academic and membership affairs.

 

The investigation centered on Selby's relationship with Robert "Bay" Frazier. Frazier was a friend of Selby's mother since childhood, and also the agent for NBA star Carmelo Anthony.

 

“This process had several moving parts, the first one being academics," said KU Interim Athletics Director Sean Lester. "Once that was addressed we and the NCAA moved to the eligibility aspect. We knew it would take time, and we appreciate our partnership with the NCAA and our constant communication during this process.”

 

Selby is considered one of the top freshmen in the country. He will be eligible to play for Kansas December 18th against USC.
