Some comments from Sidney Moncrief on the trio
Moncrief said that he did not want Beverley cone out early. But if my memory is right, I remember he had to because of the academic problem he had.
He was declared ineligible for his junior year, with no specific details ever given. He later admitted that he turned in a paper written for him by someone else. I think he could have sat out his junior year and returned for his senior year, but I’m not certain about that. Perhaps this is the avenue Moncrief, knowing he wasn’t ready for the NBA, hoped Beverley would take, rather than go pro overseas.
