Maryland reports to NCAA on Booth's trip to see Bulls game

November 22, 1995|By Ken Murray

Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow acknowledged yesterday through a department spokesman that the university has sent a report to the NCAA on alleged rules violations over basketball player Keith Booth's trip to Chicago last spring for a Bulls playoff game.

She also said there was no time line on a response from the NCAA.

Booth traveled to Chicago with a close friend, Jeremiah Dickens, who purchased both plane and game tickets. The Washington Post reported on Nov. 14 that Dickens bought the tickets through Washington sports agent David Falk, which could be in violation of NCAA rules.

Maryland investigated the charges in late May and filed a report in July. The NCAA has since asked for further information, and Maryland recently complied.

Yow hoped to have the matter resolved before Friday, when Maryland faces Kentucky in the Tip-Off Classic in Springfield, Mass.
