Hayes to Give Draft a Shot
Georgia guard Jarvis Hayes will make himself eligible for the NBA draft, a decision he announced a day after Georgia suspended Coach Jim Harrick and abruptly ended its season.
Hayes, the Bulldogs’ leading scorer the last two seasons, won’t sign with an agent, meaning the junior could return next season.
Harrick was suspended with pay Monday and the school withdrew from the Southeastern Conference and NCAA tournaments after finding that three players were involved in academic fraud.
St. Bonaventure’s former president, Robert Wickenheiser, dismissed trustees’ concerns eight months ago about the eligibility of center Jamil Terrell. Athletic Director Gothard Lane first informed trustees last June that Terrell might not be eligible to play, school spokesman David Ferguson said. The trustees contacted Wickenheiser, who responded in a memo “that Terrell’s transfer is not a problem,” Ferguson said.
Cincinnati reserve Rod Flowers was reinstated after being thrown off the team March 5 for what Coach Bob Huggins said was conduct detrimental to the team.
