Kentucky Center Kanter Ruled Ineligible

Post by oh brody on Thu Nov 11, 2010 10:10 pm

The NCAA ruled Enes Kanter permanently ineligible to play for the Wildcats this season after receiving over $33,000. This appears to be a substantial loss because Kanter is the only true center on the Wildcat's roster.

Actually, he was declared ineligible for all seasons.

I think it's a complete outrage.

Calipari has seen to it that his players got a lot more than 33K without NCAA interference. Mitch Barnhart should be ashamed of himself for falling down on the job.

per ESPN Eamonn Brennan's blog:
Expected or not, though, there's no question that Kanter's ineligibility alters the projection for Kentucky's season. With him, the Wildcats not only have several of the best guard and wing prospects in the country -- Brandon Knight, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, et al. -- they have a can't-miss big man with professional-level strength, low-block scoring and rebounding skills, and a major interior defensive presence. Without Kanter, the Wildcats are still talented, but they're also decidedly undersized.

With Kanter, Kentucky could've well been a Final Four team. Without him, well, not so much.
I have to admit, my first reaction to this news was "hey this helps the Pilots chances" but thinking more about it - its really a bummer that we wont' be able to take on a full strength Kentucky team and see this talented big man first hand next week.
