It's been a rough week for two former Baltimore Sun All-Metro Player of the Year honorees.
Memphis shooting guard Will Barton and Kansas point guard Josh Selby, both of whom starred at Lake Clifton, are facing eligibility questions from the NCAA. Barton has appealed an NCAA decision ruling him ineligible based on his August 2009 graduation date from Lake Clifton. Selby's problem with the NCAA involves questions about his relationship with Robert "Bay" Frazier, the business manager for Carmelo Anthony.
Barton's mother, Karen Bush, said Friday that Will is in good spirits.
"We're working on seeing what can be done, and I know Will has worked hard to get where he's at. He's done everything that he was supposed to have done. It will be resolved the way it's supposed to be resolved. He will continue to do his studies, work hard and hopefully everything will work out the way it's supposed to. We're positive here in the Barton camp, so he's doing fine."
Selby's mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, said Friday that the NCAA's probe "is just protocol."
"He's not worried at all," Witherspoon said. "We don't foresee any problems that Josh won't be cleared."
