NCAA Clears KU's Diallo to Play

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The NCAA will allow freshman Cheick Diallo to begin playing for the number five-ranked University of Kansas beginning next week, ending a months-long investigation into the five-star prospect's background. In a statement Wednesday, the NCAA said Diallo received a limited amount of impermissible benefits. The result is a five-game suspension that includes four games already missed and the Maui Invitational title game Wednesday night against No. 19 Vanderbilt. Diallo will be allowed to play Tuesday night against Loyola of Maryland. The 6-foot-9 Diallo has been allowed to practice with KU, but he had been barred from participating in games while the NCAA examined his coursework from a New York prep school and his relationship with his guardian, Tidiane Drame. The NCAA said KU provided new information last week that helped it render a decision.
