The NCAA ruled against Marshall University men’s basketball player Kareem Canty and his eligibility for this season.
The ruling handed down Thursday prevents Canty from practicing and competing with the Herd this season. He will remain on an academic scholarship and after the completion of the spring 2013 semester he can rejoin the team.
Canty, a 6-foot-1 freshman from Harlem, N.Y., said via Twitter, he wanted to thank all of the Herd fans for everything.
Ranked 25th best point guard, according to Rivals.com, in his class, Canty said via Twitter, this is one of the toughest times for him.
