CINCINNATI (AP) -The NCAA has turned down a request by Xavier guard Jordan Crawford to play for the 14th-ranked Musketeers this season.
The sophomore point guard transferred from Indiana over the summer, and was hoping to be able to avoid sitting out a season. The NCAA turned down his request Wednesday before Xavier played Auburn.
Crawford played in 30 games at Indiana as a freshman, including eight starts. He averaged 9.7 points and scored in double figure 15 times. The Musketeers could use another point guard - freshman Terrell Holloway is out for a few weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot.
Holloway also committed to Indiana initially, but changed his mind after coach Kelvin Sampson resigned amid a phone-call scandal.
