According to Peter Yoon at tWWL . . .
UCLA filed an appeal with the NCAA on Wednesday on behalf of freshman Shabazz Muhammad, coach Ben Howland said. The appeal will be heard Friday and Howland said he expects to hear a decision "shortly thereafter."
And . . .
Muhammad has been declared ineligible for competition by the NCAA, which investigated and determined that he had received improper benefits in the form of lodging and travel expenses for unofficial visits during the recruiting period.
I'm very happy to see that there is a chance that this mess will be resolved as early as Friday. Has Shabazz been ruled inelgible for the season, or just inelgible until a final ruling is made?
