Details are still developing here, but it appears that many of thee Curie Condors (IL) were not maintaining a 2.0 GPA for the majority of the year. It appears their CPS title is being revoked as a result, but the silver lining in the clouds is that Cliff Alexander and many others were cleared for the playoffs.
Full story on Curie: Cliff Alexander cleared, but two key starters aren't. Curie plays Tuesday at 6 p.m. http://t.co/INm5TKS309

This news must be hard for many of the players to hear, but it seems to me that this is a mess that Curie’s head coach needs to clean up. It is a shame that this comes in the wake of what was dubbed an “epic” and “legendary” quadruple overtimes CPS title game. Hopefully the Condors can finish out their year with a couple more wins, but honestly it would be surprising at this point if they ended up winning the state title. It would certainly take a Herculean effort from Alexander for that scenario to occur.
Two starters on the squad will be ineligible to play, which is another fact that deals a blow to their chances. However, it is not over until the fat lady sings, and you can bet that this is a situation we are keeping an eye on at Rant Sports Prep. Got one more piece in the oven tonight, and it happens to be a little bit less depressing. Thanks for popping by for a spell.
