NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Old Dominion men's basketball coach Jeff Jones says the NCAA has denied Donte Hill's appeal for another year of eligibility, ending his college career.
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 last 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 ODU 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.''
