NCAA denies Stokes eligibility waiver for Tiger Basketball

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The 15th ranked Memphis Tigers Basketball team gets another blow from the NCAA with the denial of Big Man Isaiah Stokes’ eligibility application for this season.

The 6-foot-8-inch, 250 pound former Lausanne star transferred to Memphis from Florida in August and was seeking a waiver because the Gators weren’t going to renew his scholarship.

Tigers Head Coach Penny Hardaway says the U of M plans to appeal the ruling.
