On the heels of the announcement of Marvin Austin's dismissal from UNC comes the news that Tar Heels Greg Little and Robert Quinn have been ruled permanently ineligible. The university goes into considerably more detail here in listing the duo's misdeeds:
The university declared both student-athletes ineligible for violations of NCAA agent benefits, preferential treatment and ethical conduct rules. According to the facts submitted by the university, the total value of the benefits is approximately $4,952 for Little and $5,642 for Quinn.
Little accepted diamond earrings, as well as travel accommodations for the Bahamas, Washington D.C. and two trips to Miami, among other benefits. Quinn accepted two black diamond watches, a pair of matching earrings and travel accommodations for a trip to Miami, among other benefits.
Based upon information gathered by the institution and the NCAA Agent, Gambling and Amateurism staff during its joint investigation, unethical conduct charges were found against both student-athletes for providing false and misleading information.
This brings the grand total (so far) of banished Tar Heel players to three.
