COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Faced with sitting out at least another year at SC as the federal investigation into college basketball continues, a "devastated" Brian Bowen felt he had no choice but to remain in the NBA draft. Bowen's father allegedly received $19,500 from Adidas to help steer his son toward Louisville, an Adidas-sponsored program. Bowen has continually denied having any knowledge of the alleged payouts to family members since the very beginning. After a lengthy deliberation, the NCAA has finally made a ruling on the matter and informed Bowen that he'd at least have to sit out next season, and possibly more as a effect. Bowen was suspended and then transferred from Louisville as the Cardinals didn't file for his NCAA reinstatement.
