KrausBowling Green sophomore guard Luke Kraus has been cleared to play in the Falcons' game at Miami Saturday, according to the Mid-American Conference office.
Kraus committed a flagrant foul on Ohio's Tommy Freeman in the final moments of BG's 70-60 loss to the Bobcats Wednesday at the Convocation Center in Athens, Ohio. A flagrant foul results in two free throws for the opponent and an immediate game ejection, but it does not include a one-game suspension, according to MAC officials.
MAC commissioner Jon Steinbrecher reviewed video of the incident Friday morning and, along with Ricky Stokes, the league's associate commissioner and director of men's basketball operations, ruled that the flagrant foul will not result in a suspension.
As a result, Kraus can play when the Falcons take on the RedHawks at Millett Hall in contest scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Saturday.
The game will be televised by ESPNU.
