No good deed goes unpunished

Here's another sad story of the NCAA going way out of bounds. Indiana State was pretty excited getting Dwayne Lathan, a star swingman transfer from LSU. Nice kid, clean cut. He even participated in charity events.

Unfortunately for Lathan, the NCAA added a chapter that ruined the story.

Lathan has been suspended by the NCAA for the first two games of the season. Lathan, who transferred in 2008, participated in an unsanctioned 3-on-3 charity basketball event while he was still a student at Louisiana Tech in April 2008.

Suspended for a charity event. Think about that...

"I wanted to play (against) LSU, I thought that was going to be a big game for me," said a disappointed Lathan.

Hey NCAA, try some common sense in your judgments.
