Adam Boone Awarded Sixth Year of Eligibility
"We are very excited for Adam," head coach Dan Monson said. "We are grateful to the many people who put in a lot of time and effort to make this happen for him. The NCAA made an important decision and one that was right for the welfare of the student-athlete. Obviously, this helps our team for next season, but more importantly, it helps Adam receive his degree and finish playing the way every student-athlete deserves to – on the floor with his teammates instead of on the sidelines with an injury."
"Most of all, I'm very relieved," said Boone. "My parents and I knew this was an uphill battle, but we felt it would be worth it. I would like to thank Coach Monson, everyone at the ‘U' and all the people externally who helped make this happen. During this process, I've come to really appreciate what it means to play college basketball and I'm very excited I was given the opportunity to play a senior season. I can't wait for next season to start and be back on the floor at Williams with my teammates."
The NCAA will send official written notification next week.
