JuiceDuice violating NCAA rules?

What do we have here... well look fellow BN'ers! It's another Trojan potentially violating NCAA rules. Let's see if this makes a peep on the NCAA radar. Here's the relevant portions about JuiceDuice from LA Times article:

USC freshman guard O.J. Mayo may have violated NCAA rules by accepting complimentary tickets from Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony to Monday's Lakers-Nuggets game at Staples Center.

Although USC compliance officials could not be reached for comment, NCAA bylaw 16.11.2.2.3 states that student-athletes may not receive "free or reduced-cost admission to professional athletics contests from professional sports organizations, unless such services also are available to the student body in general."

A couple of my favorite parts: Mayo said he didn't know where his seats were located until he took them to an usher, "and he kept walking down farther and farther and farther. The next thing you know, we had pretty good seats." Mayo was among the celebrities spotlighted during the national TNT broadcast. Does anyone else think it is total bullshiat that he didn't know where the seats were? That just sounds too flat out rehearsed.

And finally...

Anthony made the offer of tickets at a party he hosted Sunday night, Mayo said.

"I was talking to him like, 'Man, you're out pretty late. You've got a game tomorrow against Kobe [Bryant],' " Mayo said. "He said, 'Nah it will be all right.' And then he asked, 'You want to come to the game?' And I was like, 'Sure.' "

Out partying before a game against the Lakers and Kobe. Bad Carmelo, bad!
