Kevin McNamara of the Providence Journal spoke with John Rooke during halftime of the game tonight and had a quick comment about the Kiwi Gardner situation. There is still no word yet on his eligibility, but the school thinks that “things look good” regarding the appeal. The problem is just that the NCAA takes a long time with these types of things.
Hopefully word will come soon as there are just 7 days until the start of the season. Thankfully, Gardner can practice with the team in the meantime. If all he misses are the two exhibition games, Friartown (and probably Vincent Council) will breathe a huge sigh of relief.
