So says Newsday's Neil Best via twitter. Syracuse.com also chimes in:
Minutes before the start of today's NCAA Tournament game between Syracuse and Kansas State here at the Consol Energy Center, Kansas State officials announced the Wildcats starting forward Jamar Samuels would not be eligible to play.
In a statement, the university cited "an eligibility concern.''
Kansas State, ironically, is playing Syracuse this afternoon who is dealing with an eligibility concern of its own.
