LOS ANGELES (AP) - The NCAA has ruled UCLA freshman guard Shabazz Muhammad eligible to play.
The NCAA said Friday that UCLA's sanctions against Muhammad were sufficient after the school required him to sit out three games and repay $1,600 in impermissible benefits.
The NCAA and UCLA found that Muhammad accepted travel and lodging during three unofficial visits to Duke and North Carolina.
Muhammad will be in the lineup when the No. 13 Bruins (3-0) return to action Monday night in New York against Georgetown at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
The NCAA announced Nov. 9, less than two hours before the Bruins' opener, that Muhammad was ineligible. UCLA filed a formal appeal Wednesday.
