4. Kevin Scarbinsky: “The last game was a snapshot of the en­tire season…”

5. Kentucky vs. Iowa State.  Cyclones love to shoot the three-pointers. Iowa State forward Royce White was almost a Wildcat. One reason he’s not – fear of flying.

UT Heading To Pittsburgh Without Maymon

Tomorrow’s game against #3 Pittsburgh was expected to be the debut of Tennessee sophomore Jeronne Maymon, a transfer from Marquette.  Not so.

According to Bruce Pearl, Maymon has passed all five classes that he took in the fall semester.  But university officials have yet to clear him.

“At this time the university has not declared him eligible,” Pearl said.  “We are disappointed.”  Asked if Maymon might be cleared prior to gametime — even though he did not fly to Pittsburgh with the team — Pearl told The Knoxville News Sentinel, “I can’t comment any further.”

Maymon also spoke to The Sentinel’s Mike Griffith saying, “It was shocking and disappointing to hear that, because I’ve worked hard to pass my classes and get all my ducks in a row.  All my grades are posted.”

According to the player, UT officials told him that he couldn’t be cleared because the school is still in the middle of an academic window when grades can be changed.  But Maymon says he has emails from all of his professors — is a bowling teacher really a professor? — saying that “nothing will be added or subtracted from any of my grades.”

“I got up at 6:30 this morning to meet with my (academic) advisor to see what could be done, but apparently someone is dead-set against me playing tomorrow.”

Or perhaps someone in Knoxville is dead-set on following the letter of the law these days. 

It’s common knowledge that the Tennessee basketball program is still under NCAA scrutiny at the moment.  And while Maymon might have assurances from his teachers that his passing grades will not change, it’s understandable if UT officials don’t want to take any chances.  If someone does enter a grade different from the one Maymon currently has in hand it could result in the Vols having played an ineligible player, accidentally.  And that’s likely something Tennessee administrators wouldn’t want to discuss with the NCAA right about now.

The 6-7, 258-pound Maymon’s absence from UT’s roster could prove costly against a big Pitt team tomorrow.  And that’s likely why Pearl commented on the record about his disappointment in a university decision. 

But knowing Pearl’s current employment status, it’s probably in his best interest to just grin and bear it until UT’s academic calendar rolls over and Maymon is cleared.  At this point he’s in no position to complain too loudly about anything Tennessee officials decide.
