Jones’ career likely over after suspension from SU for cyberbullying last year

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Mookie Jones is likely done playing basketball at Syracuse.Jones, who left SU last January, told The Post-Standard eligibility issues will prevent him from returning to the team. Jones was suspended by the university for one year after a Syracuse student accused him of cyberbullying last fall, according to the article.Jones’ eligibility could be affected by the yearlong suspension. The NCAA — under rule 14.2.1 – requires athletes to finish their careers in five calendar years, starting when the athlete begins school. Jones arrived at Syracuse in 2008, which would make this season his last under the rule.In January, Jones’ suspension ends and he can apply for reinstatement at the university, according to the article. But his eligibility to return to the team would be affected by the year of classes he missed. Athletes must maintain progress toward a degree to be eligible in sports.Jones still has athletic eligibility right now, Pete Moore, SU director of athletic communications, said Wednesday. Moore said Jones is not currently enrolled at SU. He does still have his scholarship, but he must be enrolled in school to use it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMoore said if Jones doesn’t play this season, the team could use his scholarship for another player.Jones said he wants to return to SU to complete his degree requirements, according to the article. He also said he is trying to play professional basketball overseas. Jones played 38 minutes in seven games last season for the Orange.The cyberbullying incident involved a 20-year-old female student, who claimed Jones posted “unflattering characterizations” of her on his Facebook, according to the article. It led to his suspension by SU’s Judicial Review Board.Syracuse Police responded to a domestic verbal complaint in which the woman, who Jones has been involved in a relationship, accused Jones of the unflattering posts and of harassing her with text messages, according to a police report cited in the article. Though she said she didn’t think Jones “would become physical with her,” the woman requested an order of protection.Jones said in a statement to the police that the woman had been “spreading rumors about him” since they broke up, according to the article.The SU Judicial Board reviewed the situation after the woman’s complaint, and suspended Jones for one year.

Blum: Amid NCAA tournament run, perspective on what’s most important was lost

first_imgYou really could twist the narrative of Syracuse women’s basketball’s run into whatever you want.Theoretically, this run could be about the amount of coverage the women’s team received, especially as it compares to a men’s team that often dominates the headlines.It could be about that if you wanted it to be.This run could be about the women’s team becoming a top program after many years of playing second-fiddle to a men’s team with a history of success.That’s the narrative you could focus on.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt could be about Syracuse University not doing enough to create an atmosphere for equality in athletics. It could be about women’s rights. It could be about the Syracuse men’s team. It could be about the team’s poor attendance.We all love a good storyline, even if it’s one that we make to overshadow what the real storyline should be. This historic NCAA tournament run for the women has been connected to every end of the spectrum. But in reality, what it’s really about is a team that dominated the postseason all the way to national title game. Because the politics attached to this run are just politics — hype and hyperbole, un- or under-researched ideas. Distortions of the truth. There are a lot of contexts that you could view the NCAA women’s tournament run, but I choose to stick to just how impressive it truly was.A dream scenario for Orange basketball fans ended on Tuesday night. Two teams from one city both playing in the Final Four — only the ninth time in college basketball history that it’s happened. The men’s team lost on Saturday night in Houston to North Carolina in the Final Four. The women’s team lost in the national title to powerhouse Connecticut.It was an unprecedented amount of success. Both the women’s team and men’s team shared gamedays for the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight. Both attended the same pep rally to send them off. Because both teams won, their success was, in a very tangible yet unfair way, connected.It gave us an opportunity to criticize the media for prioritizing men’s coverage over the women. An unfair criticism, of course, partly because the women’s team both receives local coverage (I covered the team for two years and saw a good amount of others doing the same). But also because the men’s team has a stronger base of success. It has more people interested in attending its games. Media, like any business, is a supply and demand game. If there’s less readership, then there’s less coverage.This then gave us an opportunity to make a point of showing the disparity of attendance between the two teams. Another misleading criticism. Yes, the attendance was atrocious, but without an established history of success, it’s hard to expect good crowds. At almost every school around the country, you’ll find higher attendance at men’s games. I’m not going to get into why, but it’s an issue that isn’t limited to the Salt City.I covered the men’s team this season. And the story of their Final Four run was about how unexpected and special it was. How two seniors in Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije got to define their legacy over a historic two-week stretch. How Jim Boeheim defied the odds of suspension and criticism to confirm his place among the coaching greats.But the story surrounding the women’s tournament just didn’t seem to be about what was on the court. It was about comparisons and shortcomings. The run was put into peripheral contexts, unrelated to the fact that the team was one of the best in the country. That it lost one game since Jan. 26.Syracuse went on a 16-0 run against the Huskies to give life to a game that had lost it. In that moment, it was just about the basketball. Syracuse’s ability to press and turn defense into easy offense. Its star power in Brianna Butler, Alexis Peterson and Brittney Sykes was what was on display. That was the narrative. Not SU attendance, coverage or its inability to recruit Syracuse native and UConn star Breanna Stewart.But then the Huskies went back on their blistering, record-setting pace. The Huskies captured its fourth-straight NCAA championship. Syracuse was deprived of its first. A magical run was over.It’s a run that should be appreciated for how spectacular and improbable it was. In all likelihood, that’s what it will be remembered for.But in the moment, the fleeting narratives threatened to steal the spotlight from a team that deserved better.

Muhammad Ali’s Parkinson disease worsens

first_imgBoxing legend, Muhammad Ali, is so ill from Parkinson’s that he can barely speak, his brother, Rahman Ali has said.The three-time world heavyweight champion was diagnosed with the disease in 1984, but his condition has gradually deteriorated and he is now mostly housebound.He was too ill to attend a premiere of a film about his life last week and his condition meant he could not take part in the production of the movie either.His brother, Rahman, 71, attended the screening of ‘I Am Ali’ in Hollywood, and told The Sunday People: ‘I have not been able to talk to my brother about this because he is sick.‘He doesn’t speak too well. But he is proud that we are here for him. He has given this film his blessing.’While his daughter Maryum, 46, who was also at the premiere, said her father would love the film and it will make him laugh and cry.Her sister Hana, 38, is planning to show the legendary boxer the new movie at his Arizona home later this month. Directed by Clare Lewins, the documentary movie gives unprecedented access to Ali’s personal archive of ‘audio journals’ as well as interviews with his family and boxers Mike Tyson and George Foreman, and put together to tell his life story.Nicknamed the ‘Louisville Lip’ for his infamous wit, Ali remained active for several years after his diagnosis and made a moving appearance at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games where he lit the flame.However, the sporting icon, who retired from boxing after suffering several strokes, was seen looking particularly thin and frail at the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony where he was helped across the stage by wife Lonnie.In February 2013 his brother Rahman said Ali was so crippled by the degenerative brain condition that has afflicted many ex-boxers, he might not survive until the summer.He also made claims that the family had been barred from seeing Ali, who is estimated to be worth more than £50million, and could only speak to him on the phone. Rahman said his brother was ‘a prisoner in his own home’ and he is being gravely mistreated by his wife because ‘she is more interested in Ali’s money than his well-being’.However, Ali’s daughter May said she had spoken to her father that morning and he was fine, watching the Super Bowl at home in Arizona wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey.“He’s fine, in fact, he was talking well this morning,” she said in a telephone interview with CBS at the time. “These rumours pop up every once in a while but there’s nothing to them.”Muhammad’s son, Ali Jr, said in January he believe there was ‘no chance’ his father would survive another year.“I just want, hope and pray to God that this awful disease takes my dad sooner rather than later. Take him away from all the suffering he’s in,” stressed the junior Ali.last_img read more
