GoLocalProv: PC’s Cooley “Gets It!”
Rumors were circulating around the Dunk that freshman guard Kiwi Gardner may be no longer be with the program. Those rumors are simply not true. Cooley told GoLocalProv.com after the game that Gardner was told to go home to Los Angeles and enjoy the holidays with his family since he has been ruled ineligible to play by the NCAA. A source also said that Gardner did very well in his first semester at PC despite the NCAA saying that he did not have the proper credentials coming out of high school to be eligible to play as a freshman at PC. Because of the NCAA’s ruling, Gardner cannot practice with the team or sit on the bench during their games. However, he is expected to return to Providence before the start of second semester.
