St. John's freshman Kassoum Yakwe cleared to play by NCAA
The school announced the decision Wednesday, meaning the 6-foot-7 forward from Mali will be available for the game at Fordham on Dec. 2. St. John's is competing in the Maui Invitational this week.
Marcus LoVett, another at St. John's freshman, was declared a partial qualifier by the NCAA this month. He can practice with the team but cannot play in games.
