Wildcats’ Diarra eligible to play

Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) – Kansas State forward Dramane Diarra was made
eligible by the NCAA on Monday.

Diarra, a junior college transfer from Cloud County Community College, has
practiced all season with the Wildcats. But he missed their initial 11 games
while the NCAA investigated his alleged participation with a professional team
in France.

Kansas State athletic director Tim Weiser said Diarra received only money for
his expenses.

Wildcats head coach Jim Wooldridge said Diarra will be available for their
game Wednesday against Kansas.
