Cincy declares Laurinburg freshman ineligible

Cincinnati freshman basketball player Vincent Banks has been ruled academically ineligible for the 2004-05 season for failing to meet initial eligibility requirements, the university announced last week.

Banks, a 6-2 guard from Atlanta, was named Mr. Basketball in the state of Georgia in 2003 after averaging 31.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game at South High School.

Last season, Banks was the leading scorer (23.0 ppg) for high school power Laurinburg (N.C.) Prep while leading his team to a 29-4 record.

Banks is currently enrolled in classes at Cincinnati.

Memphis loosens grip on seating areas

Beginning with Saturday's game against Southern Miss, the University of Memphis and the FedEx Forum were to begin allowing fans more flexibility in moving around within seating sections before each game and during halftime.

The new policy, announced last week by the Tigers athletic department, permits ticket holders in the lower and club levels to move around within the two levels and allows fans with upper level tickets to move around their level during the designated times.

The announcement noted that the change was made "in order to encourage camaraderie among Tiger fans."
