NCAA Suspends James Wiseman 11 Games

Wiseman will miss 11 additional games, bringing his total ban to 12 contests.

He dropped the lawsuit and his attorneys said it had become clear the lawsuit was an issue between the university and the NCAA. As part of that decision, Memphis ruled him ineligible and announced it would immediately apply for his reinstatement. Wiseman had played for Team Penny and would enroll at East High School. The university said in a statement that Wiseman didn't know about the money given to his family.

Wiseman is the centerpiece of the top-ranked recruiting class Hardaway secured for his second season as the head coach at Memphis.
