Texas guard Myck Kabongo will be suspended by the NCAA for the remainder of the season, according a Yahoo! Sports report. Kabongo hasn't played while the NCAA investigates whether he hired an agent, lied about whether he paid for a May workout and made Texas clear of his intentions to work out in Cleveland after his freshman season. Yahoo! Sports first reported the punishable benefit when Kabongo worked out with Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, who is a fellow Canadian and former Texas player. He also worked out with trainer Jerry Powell, who is connected with LeBron James' agent, Rich Paul. The sentence for "impermissible benefits" typically includes a suspension of up to 10 games and demands that the benefits be repaid. Kabongo is in trouble because he didn't provide the NCAA all the information initially, ESPN.com reported, citing multiple Texas officials. "A final decision has not been made in Myck Kabango's eligibility case. We and the NCAA are working together and a final decision is expected within the next few days," Texas said in a statement sent to ESPN.com.
