The NCAA is investigating Guy-Marc Michel’s amateur status, Indiana announced in a statement.
“Prior to attending North Idaho Community College, Guy participated in club basketball in France, where he finished high school and enrolled in some college courses,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a prepared statement. “In three years with the French club, Guy participated as a member of an amateur team. In his third year, he was “called up” for limited participation with a team that included professional players.”
Indiana anticipated an extended review of Marc-Michel’s status.
“We are hopeful for a positive resolution to Guy’s case within the coming weeks,” Crean said. “While he is not eligible to compete at this time, he will continue to improve in practice, and he’ll continue doing very well in the classroom, until the process is complete.”
