Memphis’ Wiseman cleared to compete Jan. 12

James Wiseman, a freshman on the University of Memphis men’s basketball team, must sit 11 additional games (12 total) based on recruiting inducements his family received before he enrolled at Memphis and for competing in three games while ineligible. He will be eligible to compete in Memphis’ Jan. 12 contest at South Florida. He also must donate $11,500 to a charity of his choice.

A pragmatic approach

The University of Michigan was one of six awardees that received an NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant in 2014, the first year of the program.

Innovations grant proposals sought

Proposals are being sought for the second year of the NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant Program. The program will award $100,000 to support research and data-driven projects aimed at improving the mental health and psychosocial well-being of student-athletes.
