The basketball su.spemion was or- cxccflsivc but; ducted l;y Moore last May. Kentucky dered by l.he SEC Executive Committee. It means Kentucky can play no conference school for the duration of the. suspension, but leaves the Wildcats free to play any school outside the conference. In thin connection, however, the 6fcC dropped a hint thai Kentucky might have to rule on the eligibility of one or more basketball players before they would be accepted by the National Collegiate Athletic ANKiclation. It said Kentucky's sus- pTismn was for 'violation of rules end regulations" of the SEC. Only eligibility rules appear strong enough lo stand behind rv suspension. This ws.i taken as an Indication that Kentucky must remove the players who caused the suspension before It can meet outside learns belonging to tha NCAA. Already on its tentative schedule outside the SBC are St. Louis, Minnesota. Notre Dame. DePaiil and Xavier. On Ihe heels of the Executive Committee's announcement.
