Doug Strothman, whose private Catholic school will educate the players competing for Aspire Basketball Academy, told My San Antonio he expects Bassey to be on campus when classes start Aug. 11.
Bassey and St. Anthony’s first-year international players were ruled ineligible by the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) before the start of the 2016-17 season.
