Texas guard Myck Kabongo may get one year suspension
TX, United States (4E Sports) – Texas Longhorns guard Myck Kabongo may be suspended for the rest of the season for withholding information onimpermissible benefits transgressions.
The NCAA investigated whether he retained an agent, if he told the truth about whether he paid for a workout in May and if Texas was aware of his intentions for a May workout with the Cleveland Cavaliers after his freshman season.
Yahoo! Sports initially reported the apparent impermissible benefits transgression when Kabongo worked out with former Texas player Tristan Thompson, who is now with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and with trainer Jerry Powell, who is connected with Rich Paul, an agent for LeBron James.
“We and the NCAA are working together and a final decision is expected within the next few days,” according to a statement by Texas.
The report came out after after the Longhorns’ 85-67 victory over No. 23 North Carolina.
Kabongo started 34 games last season but hasn’t played in 2012-2013.
