WSU pitcher Brian Flynn ineligible for 2010 season

Wichita State sophomore left-hander Brian Flynn has been ruled academically ineligible for the 2010 season, the school announced today.

Flynn, from Owasso, Okla., was 2-5 last season with a 4.98 ERA as the Shockers' fourth starter.

"We are all deeply saddened by this development, but ultimately it is up to each young man to take care of his academic responsibilities," WSU coach Gene Stephenson said in a statement. "Brian has failed to do that and he must pay the price."
