Todd Rosiak landed the scoop last night....here's a link to the article in Friday's paper.
Marquette University freshman forward Lazar Hayward was given the OK by the NCAA on Thursday afternoon to practice with the Golden Eagles, but has not yet been cleared for competition....Hayward will also be able to take part in MU's "Marquette Madness" event tomorrow night to celebrate the open of practice. It's unclear as to when the NCAA will rule on Hayward's eligibility for games.Good news for MU, I guess. 'Partial' clearance is a step in the right direction but its not necessarily that Hayward's eligibility is due to be fully restored. Still, its great to see the kid have an opportunity to integrate back into the program more fully.
