COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- James Gist and Landon Milbourne will miss Maryland's season opener against North Florida after inadvertently violating an NCAA rule, the school announced Tuesday.
Gist and Milbourne participated in one day of the Maryland state 5-on-5 tournament in Ocean City, Md. in April. The pair later learned their participation was in violation of an NCAA bylaw that prohibits student-athletes from competing in unsanctioned basketball competition outside of the university.
Upon learning of their participation in the event, the Maryland athletics department shared the infractions with the NCAA.
The opener, on Nov. 11, is part of the 2007 O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic. Gist and Milbourne will be eligible to return the following night.
What if this was to ISU players? Banned for life?!!
