NCAA Men’s Basketball

* Former Perry Co Central Commodore Braxton Beverly has been ruled eligible to play basketball, NCAA officials announced on Twitter Tuesday. "Based on additional information, NCAA staff reconsidered and granted NC State’s transfer waiver request for Braxton Beverly, allowing him to compete immediately," the tweet read. Beverly had been denied immediate eligibility after leaving Ohio State following Thad Matta's resignation. He took a summer class, causing the NCAA to deny him eligibility for one year initially. After a waiver request and subsequent appeal, Beverly was still ruled ineligible. A final request for reconsideration for his eligibility was submitted after the appeal failed. That request was successful. Beverly played for five years at Perry Co Central.
