South sophomore T.J. Bell will not be initially eligible to play varsity basketball this season.
Bell’s mother, Quacy Timmons (formerly Barnes), did not make the move from Charleston, Ill. to Bloomington, thus making Bell ineligible under the Indiana High Schools Athletics Association (IHSAA) rules calling for a bona fide change of residence.
Bell is a 2012 target for Indiana.
Tom Crean tweeted the following five minutes ago:
The Restoration job here just took a very large step. MAURICE CREEK HAS BEEN CLEARED BY THE NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE AND CAN START WITH US TODAY
He also tweeted this:
We never doubted he would do it but its nice to have that closure.
We’ll look have to more later.
Though a press release from Jared Jeffries’ foundation said Tom Crean was expected to attend a celebrity meet and greet Saturday at the Twin Lakes Recreation Center, an Indiana spokesman said the reason Crean was not there was because he was not scheduled to be. Crean attended two of the foundation’s other events earlier in the weekend, including an open house at the recreation center.
Junior defensive tackle Deonte Mack and sophomore linebacker Ian Reeves have both been suspended for Thursday’s season opener against Eastern Kentucky for an unspecified violation of team rules according to an Indiana release. Mack recorded 21 tackles, including two sacks last season. Neither was listed in IU’s depth chart, which was released Friday.
Just finished writing my story on Jared Jeffries’ charity event at Twin Lakes Recreational Center, and there were a couple of important things he talked about that I couldn’t work into the narrative.
For one thing, Jeffries is enjoying life in Mike D’Antoni’s fast-paced system with the Knicks. Though he only averaged 5.3 points per game last season in 23.4 minutes per game, part of his struggles were because of a broken fibula suffered early in the season.
“Last year I was hurt,” Jeffries said. “I had to deal with my injury for the whole year. I think this year’s going to be good. It’s going to be a really good opportunity for me.”
Just as any other Indiana luminary will be between now and Bob Knight’s hall of fame induction, Jeffries was asked if he thought Knight would attend the ceremony.
“I think at a certain point, you just have to get past certain things,” he said. “You might be frustrated with a situation, but you always get past certain things. And I think he will. I think he’ll definitely get past that, and I think he’ll take that honor and be proud of it.”
Indiana football coach Bill Lynch held his post-camp, pre-season opener press conference Friday afternoon, though the most interesting news items came from the release of the depth chart and the injury report.
Some interesting tidbits follow. Look for more in tomorrow’s H-T.
