Washington’s Quade Green Has Been Ruled Academically Ineligible

Quade Green’s time in Washington is already being cut short.

According to Jeff Goodman, the former Kentucky transfer has been ruled academically ineligible and won’t be allowed to return to the team until mid-March at the earliest.

Green was named immediately eligible to play in early November after the NCAA granted a transfer waiver that permitted him to suit up this season after transferring from Kentucky in the middle of his sophomore year.

He landed with the Huskies following just nine games as a Wildcat in 2018-19. During 15 games this season in the Pac-12, Green has started 14 of them, posting averages of 11.6 points and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 51.4 percent from the floor and 44.7 percent from deep.

During his freshman season in Lexington, Green appeared in 34 games for the ‘Cats, putting up 9.3 points and 2.7 assists per outing.

    Umm… maybe because the kid quit on his team again. Maybe that’s why I wrote “LOL.” How hard is it to get a C average as a freaking junior in college? Just go to class. Seriously. This is on Quade and the Washington basketball program. How often does that happen here? Yeah.. didn’t think so. So… LOL.

    At this point in his college career, he should be way more mature than this. With all the tutoring and academic resources available to these guys, there is no excuse for an established D-1 athlete to be academically ineligible. Lazy and selfish, plain and simple. Probably explains why he left here mid-season instead of working harder for PT.

    I love all of the “he quit on his team” people on here. Let’s just ignore the fact that he was never going to play on last year’s team so he made a decision that was best for himself and his future.

      Exactly. It takes a very low and petty person to knock a kid who’s just trying to put himself in a position to play more ball. I suppose Brad Calipari quit on this team too?

      Quit verb

      quit also quitted; quitting
      Definition of quit (Entry 1 of 3)

      Green gave up on earning playing time on the Kentucky Men’s Basketball team.
      Green departed from/out of Kentucky MBB.
      Green left the company of John Calipari and the Kentucky Men’s Basketball team.

      Quit is exactly what he did. Do you know why? Because words are fairly easily definable. Words have meanings. In this case, Quit is the exact word that fits the action taken. Regardless of his rationale, excuses or reasons, Quade Green quit the Kentucky Men’s Basketball team. On this year’s team, had he improved his 3 point shooting, there is no reason that he couldn’t be a key role player off the bench.

      He’s not going to be a starter in the NBA. There are other ways to play and stay in the NBA. That takes discipline, though.

      Now, do I blame him? Maybe not. Yet, the fact remains and his actions speak for themselves. Q U I T is exactly what he did.

      Brad Calipari was never going to be more than a walk on at a school like Kentucky and that only because his father was the coach. And that’s ok. Cal earned that right.

      Tyler Herro was “never going to be a one and done”. Yet, there we are.

      Hard work and discipline bends all the rules to the “never was” game.

      According to the all knowing crowd, Lynn Bowden was never going to play Quarterback at the College level.

    With the amount of resources for any college student, and especially athletes at a large university, you have to actively try to fail classes. That doesn’t happen by accident.

      The Big Lebowski said it all… even defined it for those who can’t understand. He quit on the team mid-season… at the same time lost a year of eligibility doing it that way. Brad Calipari waited till the season was over, he did not quit on his brothers mid-season. Therefore Brad did not lose any eligibility.

    First off, I don’t understand why he was granted a waiver to play early. He transferred simply because of playing time and players with legit reasons to transfer can’t even get waivers most the time. Second, while I agree that a third year college player has no excuse to be academically ineligible, it makes me wonder what kind of tutoring and stuff they have at UW. I guarantee if he was still at UK this would have never happened. Pretty sad though that he hurt his team like this, but he’s a grown adult. (I also don’t understand how Baker got a waiver to play immediately when he transferred for the same reasons).

      Granting waivers has become the rule, not the exception. The most inexplicable, for me, was Dez Wells, who was expelled from Xavier for sexual assault, transferred to Maryland, and was allowed to play immediately. So what was his hardship? Being accused of sexual assault? Being found guilty by the university? Having that finding upheld on appeal? Being expelled for sexually assaulting a young woman? The NCAA never explained. But it goes to show that they are quick to waive the transfer rule. Seldom, it seems, does anyone have to sit out a year.
