Memphis Tigers center Janes Wiseman who is the projected number one pick in the 2020 NBA has been ruled ineligible for this season.
Head coach Penny Hardaway provides Wiseman’s family with $11,500 in moving expenses and is deemed a booster making Wiseman ineligible for the season.
However, a Shelby County court judge halted the NCAA’s ruling for the time being meaning Wiseman can play in the Tigers Friday night game against Illinois Chicago.
This would be a huge blow to Memphis who has title hopes for the first time since the John Calipari era. They are still a capable team without him since they had the number one recruiting class but without Wiseman, it’s unlikely they can run the table in the NCAA tournament.
