Report: Seminoles point guard academically ineligible

FSU freshman point guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes, expected to compete to start, is academically ineligible this season, Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton told ESPN.

Sophomores Devon Bookert and Montay Brandon are also potential starters. ESPN reported there were issues with online classes Rathan-Mayes took at Huntington Prep.

More basketball: The NCAA approved the transfer of point guard Pe'Shon Howard from Maryland to USC.


Colorado: Connor Wood, a transfer from Texas, was named the starting quarterback.

Louisville: Coach Charlie Strong said senior running back Senorise Perry will start Sunday's opener against Ohio. Perry scored a team-high 11 touchdowns before tearing his right ACL Nov. 10 at Syracuse.

LSU: Coach Les Miles said running back Jeremy Hill will miss playing time because of his April arrest, but won't say how much. "Our discipline will be internal at this point, and I don't think we have much further to say," said Miles, who added he'd be surprised if Hill missed the opener against No. 20 TCU.

Oklahoma: Offensive lineman Jacob Reed, 23, was suspended from school after being charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her apartment over the weekend.

Oregon State: Coach Mike Riley named Sean Mannion the starting quarterback for the No. 25 Beavers.

West Virginia: Reserve linebacker Shaq Petteway will miss the season with a torn ACL.
