Statement From Ed Cooley Regarding Ricky Ledo

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence College Men's Basketball Head Coach Ed Cooley released the following statement today regarding Ricky Ledo:

    "Today the NCAA informed us that the eligibility waiver for Ricky Ledo has been partially approved and Ricky will be allowed to practice with the team but he can't compete in games. We are excited that Ricky has the oppotunity pursue his education and be part of the team. We believe that this gives us the chance to help him grow as an individual."

    "I am happy to be a student at Providence College," Ledo said. "It has always been a dream of mine to represent PC and I am looking forward to my days as a student-athlete."
