Chicago Curie Metropolitan High School's basketball team has forfeited this year's games because several players were academically ineligible to compete.
The school district announced Friday seven players on Curie's 24-1 varsity team were ineligible from the start of the 2013-14 season. Student athletes in the district must maintain a 2.0 grade average to participate in sports.
In addition to regular season games, Curie will also forfeit this year's Chicago high school championship, earned with a win over Whitney Young High School. The title will remain vacant. However, the team can compete for a state championship.
CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett says Curie's head coach, Michael Oliver, has been suspended.
Byrd-Bennett says it's the responsibility of adults to teach students right from wrong, and "unfortunately, the adults let these student athletes down."
