Tigers Garcia can Practice/can't Play

On the Eve of the University of Memphi big cross state battle Tennessee, the Tigers gets eligibility news on one of their Top Recruits.

Late Friday the Commercial Appeal reported the 6'11" Forward Angel Garcia is declared Academically Inelligible by the NCAA for the rest of the season.

The Freshman from Puerto Rico has been sitting out since the start of the campaign while the NCAA reviewed his transcript.

The U of M had hoped he would be cleared to play.

Instead, he can only practice with the team.

If he keeps his grades up, Garcia would be eligible next season.
