NCAA reinstates St. John's guard Felix Balamou
NEW YORK (AP) St. John's guard Felix Balamou has been reinstated by the NCAA.
The 6-foot-4 senior was active Thursday night for the Red Storm's home game against Rutgers. He was ruled ineligible over an unspecified rules violation hours before the opener last week against Wagner.
Balamou, from Guinea, averaged 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds in 22 games last season. In 54 career games, he has averaged 1.6 points and 1.1 rebounds.
