If you want to play serious college basketball, you have to go to class...and study. That is the price you pay for the scholarship and a real shot at the NBA.
This news came out of Indiana University over the weekend, from the Indianapolis Star:
Ratliff to miss 1st part of season
Not the best thing to do when the best recruiting class in many years is beginning to practice and you are trying to secure a starting role in your senior season. Ratliff is a guard, which is prized freshman Eric Gordon's position. At least he still can practice.
Remember, it's about getting your education. You can't play basketball and shirk the academics.
GO TO CLASS. GO TO CLASS. GO TO CLASS.
