No Dyson, Beverly, Coombs-McDaniel Tonight

This from UConn:

University of Connecticut men's basketball student-athletes Jerome Dyson, Donnell Beverly and Jamal Coombs-McDaniel will not participate in tonight's exhibition contest against American International pending evaluation of recently submitted paperwork pertaining to their annual eligibility certification.

Senior Jerome Dyson and junior Donnell Beverly are not participating pending routine educational document review for eligibility certification. The University is anticipating resolution soon, as early as tomorrow.

Freshman Jamal Coombs-McDaniel is not participating pending initial-eligibility clearance from the NCAA eligibility center. In his case, academic records have been requested and a review of those records is currently underway.

Dyson and Beverly (and Ater Majok) can be on the bench tonight in street clothes. (Beverly, however, apparently has left the building due to the flu). Coombs-McDaniel can't be, however, because his initial eligibility is apparently still in question.

Oh, and Jonathan Mandeldove isn't playing tonight, either, for academic reasons.

Great start to the season, eh?

WTF? This just a dropped ball by compliance dept? or larger microscope by NCAA? I mean odd to have this just an hour before game. Should we be concerned?

I'd go with the former. Sounds to me like it might not be too serious, at least with Dyson and Beverly. Coombs-McDaniel may take a little longer -- but that's just a guess. He had some issues over the summer with his course work at the Tilton School.
