HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The University of Connnecticut says freshman Kentan Facey has been granted a waiver to play this season by the NCAA, which was looking into eligibility issues related to his schooling in Jamaica.

The 6-foot-9 forward had left the island's British education system to attend his final two years of high school at Long Island Lutheran High School.

The NCAA was looking into whether the 20-year-old Facey may have completed schooling in the British System before he left, starting his eligibility clock. The NCAA normally gives athletes one year after they leave high school to enroll in college without any penalties.

Coach Kevin Ollie says the NCAA waiver means Facey will have four years of eligibility starting this season.

UConn opens its season on Nov. 8 against Maryland.
