Just hours before Tuesday night's exhibition game against Inter Hoop (Lithuania), University of Missouri officials announced that Pulley would not play because of certification problems, the same reason that Diakite is currently sitting out at Louisville. Pulley had played in two October scrimmages for Quin Snyder's Tigers.
"Randy Pulley has not yet been certified for competition by the University of Missouri Certifying Officer," according to UM's official release." "Therefore, he will not be competing at this time."
Whaley had 21 points and 7 rebounds against EA Sports Tuesday night in Cincinnati.
