Georgetown Freshman Center, Moses Ayegba, To Miss Nine Games

Posted by CoHoops Josh Dhani
Georgetown Hoyas freshman center Moses Ayegba will be out for the first nine games of the NCAA Basketball season due to violating the NCAA's rules of pre-enrollment.

According to head coach John Thompson, Ayegba was received a plane ticket from a non-family member and was immediately brought to to the United States from his home in Nigeria. Thompson said this all happened "before we began recruiting Moses, before he enrolled in high school here."

Thompson also told the Associated Press that he was disappointed with them rejecting his appeal of ruling for Ayegba.

Georgetown will be facing Old Dominion tonight.
