    Penny really couldn’t have thought he’d get away with this right?

    It is kind of crazy that both potential #1 picks in the NFL and NBA draft got suspended on the same day.

    Wasn't Penny his AAU and High School coach? If so, did they win a state title?
    I'd bet the Tennessee version of the KHSAA may be looking into his high school eligibility now also.

    That list seems to continue to grow more and more, almost every year.

    Did this happen in 2008 or 2018?

    2017....

    Memphis said in a statement Friday that Penny Hardaway, before he was the Tigers' coach, provided $11,500 in moving expenses to aid the Wiseman family's move to Memphis, Tennessee, without the player's knowledge. The NCAA deemed that Hardaway, a Memphis alum, was a booster at the time, according to Wiseman's attorney, Leslie Ballin.

    The NCAA issued a statement Friday night in response to Wiseman's appearance in the game, saying, "The University of Memphis was notified that James Wiseman is likely ineligible. The university chose to play him and ultimately is responsible for ensuring its student-athletes are eligible to play."

    Hardaway declined to comment on the NCAA's statement after the game. Asked why he played Wiseman before the situation had fully resolved, he told ESPN: "That's just up to the school. We're just going to go about it legally moving forward. Obviously, James has a right to do what he did, and we're moving forward from it."

    Memphis said the NCAA had declared Wiseman eligible in May. But months of investigation followed, ultimately revealing the finding of documentation of the moving expenses.

    "The University is currently working with the NCAA staff to restore his playing status, and we are hopeful for a speedy resolution to the matter," the school said in a statement.

    Wiseman, who was the No. 1-ranked recruit in the 2019 class, moved to Memphis from Nashville in the summer of 2017. He would attend East High School and play for Team Penny/Bluff City Legends on the grassroots circuit -- both of which Hardaway coached.

    I saw where the 2008 came from. That's when Penny made a $1million donation to Memphis, thus making him a booster.
