LUBBOCK, Texas — Joel Ntambwe will not see the court for Texas Tech this season.
ESPN’s Jay Bilas reported Thursday that the NCAA did not grant Ntambwe a waiver, making him ineligible to play this season. Ntambwe will have to redshirt and will be eligible for 2020-21.
Ntambwe transferred from UNLV to Texas Tech in the offseason. The Congo native averaged 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds as a freshman in Las Vegas before opting to transfer. He will be a sophomore in 2020-21.
