(Kansas City-AP) -- Oklahoma State basketball player Andre Williams is reportedly being suspended for a year. The N-C-A-A has reportedly made a preliminary decision to suspend Williams over $20,000 in tuition payments to a Maine prep school.

The payments were made by Kansas City business Tom Grant made on Williams behalf. Grant discussed the suspension in a story published today in The Kansas City Star. Grant says that Williams would be required to pay back the $20,000.

The money came from Grant's foundation and was paid to Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield. Grant says the foundation has helped other students who never played college sports. Williams has been suspended from the Oklahoma State program since December 18th over allegations concerning his summer-league coach, Myron Piggie. Williams played basketball at Schlagle High School in Kansas City, Kansas.
