 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -San Francisco senior forward Vince Polakovic has been suspended 24 games by the NCAA for circumstances stemming from his participation with a German national team in 2004.
According to a statement released by the school Saturday, several members from the German national team received stipends deemed by the NCAA ``above actual and necessary expenses.'' San Francisco contends Polakovic wasn't among those players who received payments and says it plans to appeal the suspension.
``We are very disappointed to learn the NCAA's student-athlete reinstatement staff has upheld this suspension of Vince Polakovic,'' San Francisco athletic director Debra Gore-Mann said. ``We had hoped that the NCAA staff would share our belief that the right thing to do in this particular case was to set aside precedent and do what is in the best interest of the student-athlete. Unfortunately, they do not share our sentiment.''
Polakovic, who is eligible to return for the Dons' Feb. 16 game against No. 19 Gonzaga, was held out of San Francisco's first seven games this season while school officials looked into his situation.
Polakovic played in 21 games for the Dons in 2006-07, averaging 2.0 points. In two seasons with the Dons, the 6-foot-8 native of Bratislava, Slovakia, has averaged 2.9 points and 1.2 rebounds.
