Josh Selby Cleared

The bad news?  Josh Selby was found guilty yesterday by the NCAA of receiving gifts from a long-time family friend who was one degree removed from the NBA.  The clothes, travel expenses, and meals received will cost Selby a nine game suspension (one third of the season) and a nearly-$5,000 donation to the charity of his choice.

The good news?  The number one recruit in the nation will start playing for the Jayhawks on December 18 against USC.  It's too bad that a player this good will lose a third of perhaps the only season he plays for Kansas, but such is life.  The adults involved should have known the NCAA could frown on these things.
