  • Keon Lawrence Denied Waiver

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    The Keon Lawrence saga is over.

    After a lengthy deliberation, the NCAA has decided to deny Seton Hall’s request for a hardship waiver for Lawrence, a junior guard who transferred from Missouri to be closer to his home in Newark, N.J. because of numerous family issues.

    The waiver would have enabled the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Lawrence to play immediately, but as a result of the denial, he will not play in games for the remainder of the 2008-09 season. Lawrence will continue to practice with the team and Seton Hall (9-6, 0-3 Big East) will go forward with eight scholarship players for the remainder of the season.
