Dyson, Beverly Cleared; Not Coombs
Jerome Dyson and Donnell Beverly have been cleared to practice and play for UConn, but fans will likely have to wait at least another week to see Jamal Coombs-McDaniel make his Huskies debut.
Coombs, a freshman, has been cleared to participate in practices, but not yet for games. He is still waiting to attain his initial eligibility from the NCAA.
All three players had to sit out of the Huskies' exhibition opener on Wednesday against American International College at the XL Center. Dyson, a senior, and Beverly, a junior, had to sit out pending the review of documents they submitted to UConn's compliance department.
The Huskies returned to practice today after having yesterday off.
It's extremely unlikely Coombs will play in UConn's exhibition game on Sunday at 1 p.m. against UMass Lowell at Gampel Pavilion. The school is hoping to get Coombs eligible in time for the team's official season-opener on Friday night against William & Mary.
