Former Hoosier Crawford denied

According to the Associated Press, the NCAA has turned down Jordan Crawford’s request to play for No. 14 Xavier this season. Instead, Crawford will have to sit the mandatory year for transferring before suiting up for the Musketeers. Crawford was part of the mass exodus at IU following the Kelvin Sampson fiasco last year, and had hoped the NCAA would waive the transfer year due to extenuating circumstances.

Xavier could use Crawford right now as freshman point guard Terrell Holloway, who had verbally committed to IU prior to the Sampson meltdown, is out for several weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot.


  1. Ditto for Eli Holman at Detroit and Bassett’s denial letter is probably in the mail right now to UAB.

  2. The NCAA probably denied him due to his stupidity for leaving IU. He would certainly would have been playing a ton of minutes at IU and been the star. Plus it was no hardship as it was no secret Crean wanted him to stay. In conclusion, this is one of the few times the NCAA got it right.
