Guards Jerome Dyson and Donnell Beverly have been cleared to play this season for No. 12 Connecticut. The school's compliance department gave the OK on Friday after going over documents submitted by them as part of a review of the program. The school has not revealed what those documents were, only that they "pertained to their annual eligibility certification." Dyson, a senior starter, and Beverly, a junior reserve, were held out of the team's first exhibition game on Wednesday, a 106-67 win over American International. Jamal Coombs-McDaniel also was held out of the game. The freshman is awaiting clearance by the NCAA, which is reviewing his academic qualifications. He is allowed to practice with the team but cannot play until he receives permission.
