NCAA Makes Ruling: Te’a Cooper Will Not Play
The NCAA has made a ruling on South Carolina transfer Te’a Cooper’s application for medical hardship that will not allow Cooper to play and will have to sit out the remainder of the season after sitting out last season with an injury at Tennessee.
Cooper is reportedly eligible to play for two more seasons starting in the 2018-19 season.
Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley has said she has not heard from South Carolina’s compliance officer on the reasoning behind the ruling. Staley also mentioned the idea option for Cooper’s family to lawyer up and fight for her eligibility as this has worked in the past when NC State men’s basketball player Braxton Beverly was denied a waiver for eligibility that was later overturned after taking legal action.
All I got to say to the NCAA is you better lawyer up assholes.
