But the best way for Memphis to emerge from life without Wiseman with as little damage as possible is to feed Achiuwa, the other McDonald's All-American and projected lottery pick on the roster.

The NCAA said this donation was not allowed because Hardaway, who donated $1 million to the school for its sports hall of fame a decade prior, was considered a booster by NCAA rules due to his donation.

After months of back-and-forth between Memphis and the NCAA, the sports governing body has cleared the heralded freshman to return to the basketball court on January 12.

The NCAA forbids boosters from offering financial assistance to any players. Because it played Wiseman while he was known to be ineligible, the school is likely to be charged with NCAA violations. Through it all, Wiseman had the backing of his coach, the university and all Memphis as he battled the NCAA off the court. At the time, Hardaway was the head coach at East High School (Tennessee) and ran the Team Penny grassroots program. He became the head coach of Memphis in the spring of 2018, replacing Tubby Smith.
