It’s time for Seton Hall to give up on the Michael Glover situation and give his scholarship to someone who can use it. Too bad because Glover would have been, by all accounts, an impact player for the Pirates.
As things stand, they have 8 eligible players pending the NCAA Clearinghouse decision on Melvyn Oliver’s eligibility, seven when Robert “Stix” Mitchell serves his suspension in Puerto Rico.
Here’s the Associated Press story on Glover’s case:
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the NCAA and Big East Conference filed by a former Seton Hall basketball recruit who was declared ineligible.
Michael Glover, a 6-foot-6 forward from the Bronx, was ruled ineligible last fall after enrolling at Seton Hall, a member of the Providence-based conference.
He argued in a lawsuit in August that the NCAA never gave a reason for invalidating his entire senior year transcript from American Christian Academy in Pennsylvania.
The NCAA argued that the Rhode Island federal court system had no jurisdiction over the case, and the Big East argued that it didn’t belong in the lawsuit.
U.S. District Judge Ernest Torres dismissed both defendants from the lawsuit after hearing arguments Tuesday.
