Two SIU Men's Basketball Players Reinstated

Jan 26, 2017

Two Saluki men's basketball players have been reinstated after a question about their eligibility.

Senior Leo Vincent and sophomore Sean Lloyd were held out of Tuesday's game at Wichita State as the athletic department conducted an administrative review.

SIU Director of Athletics Tommy Bell said Thursday the review is over, the issues that kept Vincent and Lloyd on the bench have been resolved to satisfy SIU's athletic compliance office, and the two players are now free to practice and play with the team.

Bell said privacy laws protect specific details from being released about the issues surrounding the players' eligibility.
