LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas freshman Cheick Diallo has been cleared to play for the fifth-ranked Jayhawks beginning next week, ending a laborious months-long investigation by the NCAA into the five-star prospect's education and background.

In a statement Wednesday, the NCAA ultimately ruled Diallo had received a limited amount of impermissible benefits. The result is a five-game suspension that includes four games he has already missed and the Maui Invitational title game Wednesday night against No. 19 Vanderbilt.

Diallo, a native of Mali, will be allowed to play Tuesday night against Loyola.
