You might remember Neil Fingleton as a 2000 member of the McDonald’s All-American team who stood in the avenue of 7-foot-6 and played at North Carolina and Holy Cross.
Fingleton had back surgery in August 2000, redshirted, appeared in one game at North Carolina and transferred to Holy Cross in 2002. Fingleton graduated from Holy Cross in 2004 and played a bit professionally in the ABA, England and Spain.
On the basketball court this is what he looked like:
Steve Prohm announced on Monday that starting center Jameel McKay will not be in the lineup on Wednesday when the Cyclones take on Texas Tech.
“He’ll practice today because I want him in practice,” Prohm said, “but game-wise, he’s suspended.”
McKay did not make the trip to Stillwater with the team on Saturday, where Iowa State beat Oklahoma State, 64-59. Prohm has not gotten into specifics regarding the cause of McKay’s suspension, but it’s reportedly an issue with the way he has been practicing. McKay is dealing with a nagging knee injury, which may play a role in the situation as well.
“My hope is he’ll be with us on Saturday,” Prohm said.
