Nov 20, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Its celebration time for Josh Selby, whom the NCAA authorities have ruled eligible to play his first college game after he had got involved in a controversy surrounding his acceptance of impermissible benefits. He will be playing the game on December 18.
Ever since the NCAA revealed the news on Friday night, December 18 has become the most awaited date for his young basketball player who is keenly looking forward to take the court for the Kansas Jayhawks. According to sources, the NCAA has announced that Josh Selby will have to miss out nine regular season games and has to pay fine for having accepted benefits which the rules does not permit. Josh Selby has already missed out three games, which also includes the seventh game that happened on Friday, where the Kansas Jayhawks took the lead over the North Texas with a 93-60. This is the price he is paying for having accepted the impermissible benefits before he signed the athletics aid agreement at the University of Kansas. Even after NCAA announced its decision on Friday, Josh Selby was still seen saying that he does not think he ever did anything wrong. The young basketball player said that neither he nor his mother were aware of the rules and regulations, as a result of which he fell a victim to this incident.
The young player confessed that he went through a very tough phase when he had to miss out the games. He said that he felt very depressed to see his team mates keeping up with the game, whereas it became quite embarrassing for him when he had to ask his team mates as to when would he get a chance to play again. However, the days are over for the freshman as next month he would be seen playing his first college game for Kansas Jayhawks.
