Mooseheart awaits judge's ruling on players' eligibility; H-BR reportedly involved
Mooseheart awaits the ruling this afternoon of a Kane County judge after the school sought an injunction against the IHSA's ruling last week stripping three South Sudanese students of their eligibility to compete for the Red Ramblers' boys basketball team.
Mooseheart was originally assured that transfer students Akim Nyang, Makur Puou and Mangisto Deng fulfilled their IHSA transfer requirements by sitting out last season, and the towering trio – Nyang stands 7-foot-1 tall, Puou is 6-10 and Deng is 6-7 – played in the Red Ramblers' first four games this season.
But IHSA executive director Marty Hickman informed the school late last week that, after an IHSA investigation, the three juniors are no longer eligible.
