Xavier senior guard Tu Holloway will sit out the first game of the upcoming basketball season due to a secondary violation of NCAA rules.
Multiple sources tell FOX19 Holloway played in an unauthorized summer league.
The incident was self-reported immediately to the NCAA in August. This violation carries a mandatory one game suspension which will be served on November 11, 2011 vs. Morgan State University.
Holloway is considered one of the best returning players in the country. He is on the pre-season watch list for the Wooden Award, given to college basketball's best player.
