Pike County Circuit Judge Sonny Reagan on Friday issued an order stopping the Alabama High School Athletic Association from disqualifying Davenport until the court rules on a complaint filed by the teen’s parents.
Davenport, a senior at Charles Henderson High School in Troy, Alabama, and a Rutgers signee, was suspended for her final season by state high school officials after playing for USA Basketball last summer.
USA Basketball sent her an $857.20 check for “lost wages” after she played in a tournament in Mexico last summer. The money inadvertently violated AHSAA’s amateur rule.
Davenport’s family repaid the money, but the teen was told she could not play.
