OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association is reversing a decision on a Tulsa high school basketball player and now says the player is eligible.

The ruling restores six wins for Tulsa School of Science and Technology.

The OSSA declared Titans player Yancey Duckett ineligible last week and said TSST would have to forfeit six wins in games Duckett played in since January 13th.

The OSSA's board reversed the ruling after getting what officials say is confidential information to support a hardship ruling and restore Duckett's eligibility.

The decision improves TSST's record to 10-and-8.
