Sneaking in at St. Bonaventure

St. Bonaventure tried to dupe the NCAA when it admitted Jamil Terrell, a junior college transfer, to the university and basketball team in 2002. Bad choice. Terrell had earned just a welding certificate from Coastal Georgia Community College, far short of the academic standards that qualify for NCAA Division-I eligibility. When news surfaced, the Bonnies faced the consequences. The team forfeited every game Terrell played in and were banned from the Atlantic-10 conference tournament. Head coach Jan van Breda Kolff was fired.
