Boatright Out For Notre Dame Game
Ryan Boatright said he expected some 400 friends and family to watch him play Saturday morning at Notre Dame. They won't be getting the chance.
Boatright will be held out of tomorrow's game as the NCAA and UConn reviews his eligibility. This development arises from additional information provided by the NCAA that pertains to conditions and events that pre-date UConn's relationship with Boatright.
Boatright will continue to practice with the team and may sit on the bench during games, but will not dress or see action while the joint review takes place.
He was suspended for UConn's first six games this season for receiving improper benefits dating back to his high school/AAU days.
Boatright hails from Aurora, Ill., just outside Chicago, and expected a whole lot of family and friends to make the 1 1/2-hour trip to South Bend.
UConn may also be without Tyler Olander, who participated in a good portion of practice Friday but will be a game-time decision tomorrow, depending on how his bruised right heel feels.
