Jesse Morgan, a guard from UMass, had his appeal denied on Tuesday by the NCAA to play basketball this season at Temple, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

The Olney High grad enrolled at Temple this summer and hoped to use his last season of eligibility this year. He was UMass's second-leading scorer last season. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 13.4 points in 14 games last season after suffering a season-ending ACL injury in January.

He was dismissed from UMass in April and has one year of eligibility remaining, which must be used this season. In order to use his last year of eligibility, Morgan needed the NCAA to waive the one year he is required to sit out after transferring and also dismiss the fact that he did not attend classes in the spring.
