The Sun's Arizin: College basketball players, be way of those prep schools

A couple of highly rated recruits from Our Savior New American are in danger of not qualifying for NCAA basketball.

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! The big news yesterday was that NovaDave's favorite recruit Cheick Diallo may not be playing for Kansas this year. Apparently his school, Our Savior New American, is having some trouble getting some of their "classes" approved by the NCAA for credit towards being cleared to play.

And now, the "news."
