Hoops: Dragovic Out For First 10 Games

Not a biggie.  We will be fine but per the official site ND is out for 10 games:

The UCLA Athletic Department has announced that freshman forward Nikola Dragovic (Belgrade, Serbia) has been ruled ineligible to compete in the first 10 regular season games of the 2006-07 season.

The ruling of ineligibility is because Dragovic competed on a team that the NCAA defines as a professional team due to the fact that some of the members of the club team, Mega Ishrana, received compensation.

While Dragovic never received compensation for the 10 games in which he played, an indeterminate number of members of the team did receive money.

Dragovic will be reinstated in time for the Bruins' 11th game of the season, a home contest with the University of Michigan on Dec. 23, 2006.

"Nikola (Dragovic) and his father (Vitomir Dragovic) tried to do everything the right way to keep his amateur status," UCLA head coach Ben Howland said. "They were unaware that anyone on the team had accepted money. This is very unfortunate, but we will comply with the NCAA's ruling."

Makes you wonder how the heck Dwayne Jarrett didn't miss a single game despite getting thousands of $$ in free rent? Oh well. With Howland I am sure our guys will be fine. There will be no excuses from hoops.

GO BRUINS.
