NCAA rejects Hill's eligibility bid
NORFOLK, Va. (AP)
Hill played as a freshman at Clemson and transferred to Old Dominion the following year but not before taking part in a preseason scrimmage. The 6-foot-4 swingman played the past two seasons for the Monarchs. Last year, he averaged a team-high 30.8 minutes and 8.2 points per game.
The NCAA rules on eligibility state if a player suits up to represent his school in any season, that counts as a year of eligibility.
Jones said in an Old Dominion release that he's disappointed but gratified Hill has his sociology degree.
The coach says Hill is ''a great representative of the ideals the NCAA encourages in its student-athletes.''
