Cats Credit Enes Kanter, Tipton Questions NCAA Rule


Josh Harrellson and members of the Kentucky team give Enes Kanter plenty of credit for helping the team's development this season.

Harrellson specifically praises Kanter for his individual improvement.

Here is an excerpt from Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader:

"That helps a lot going against him every day," Harrellson said Tuesday. "He's making me a better player."

Harrellson, UK's second-leading scorer (14.8 ppg) and leader in rebounding (9.0 rpg) and steals (1.8 spg) in the NCAA Tournament, noted how practice competition against Kanter enhanced his self-confidence.

"Being able to stop him in practice, playing against him every day, playing against the best of the best, just makes me know going into the game I'm not going to go against anyone as good as Enes," Harrellson said.

Tipton points out that "student assistant coaches are not supposed to participate as players in practice, but the NCAA does not regularly enforce the rule":

After the NCAA ruling denied UK's final appeal on Kanter's eligibility on Jan. 7, UK made him a student assistant coach. It's a role usually reserved for players who have exhausted their eligibility or been sidelined for the rest of their college careers because of injury.

Student assistant coaches are not supposed to participate as players in practice, but the NCAA does not regularly enforce the rule.

Since the end of the regular season, Kanter has had little involvement in Kentucky's preparation, spokesman De-Wayne Peevy said. Kanter has not made a road trip since the Alabama game on Jan. 18.

Why in the world would he be trying to start a problem? It's a sad thing when you have people like this.

If he hates UK so much, why doesn't he get the heck out of Lexington and report on the teams he actually likes.

"Student assistant coaches are not supposed to participate as players in practice, but the NCAA does not regularly enforce the rule."

...But this is Kentucky and this is Coach Cal...What if the NCAA decides to enforce the rule?? What could happen?

Tipton is an idiot...But what does that make the Herald-Leader? I can't see how he still has a job with them...
