The University of Kentucky's basketball program, placed on three years' probation by the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. two weeks ago, was dealt another blow when the presidents of the Southeastern Conference stripped the Wildcats of the 1988 SEC championship. The presidents voted, 8-0, to vacate both the 1987-88 regular-season and 1988 SEC tournament titles won by Kentucky because "institutional staff members did or should have known about the ineligibility" of former star Eric Manuel.

The Kentucky basketball program was put on probation for three years and banned from postseason competition for the next two years today for recruiting and academic rules violations that the NCAA said could have justified shutting down regular-season play entirely. Two Kentucky players, Chris Mills and Eric Manuel, also were declared ineligible for their part in the violations. Mills, the second-leading scorer last season, can never again play at Kentucky. Manuel, who sat out this past season after questions about his college-entrance exam, is ineligible at any NCAA institution.

The University of Kentucky may have signed five high school basketball players to letters of intent Tuesday, but in the process the Wildcats may have lost Sean Higgins of Fairfax, the top prospect on the West Coast. Among the prep stars signed by Kentucky was 6-6 guard Eric Manuel of Macon, Ga. "I was thinking about that last night," Higgins said Wednesday. "Eric Manuel basically plays the same position as I do. I might cross them out." Has he already? "I think so," he said.

Two University of Kentucky basketball players were injured in a traffic accident Friday when they were returning from Christmas dinner at Coach Eddie Sutton's house. Richard Madison, a senior forward, and Eric Manuel, a freshman guard, were in stable condition at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. They suffered multiple bruises but X-rays showed no broken bones, said Dr. Michael Ray, the team physician. They were to spend the night at the hospital for more observation.

Mike McCoy and Eric Manuel scored 16 points apiece, pacing a balanced attack that carried Oklahoma City past Central Arkansas, 77-74, Monday night in the championship game of the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics tournament. The Chiefs (34-3), winning their first NAIA title, led most of the way as every starter scored in double figures. Mark Chambers and Tony Terrell had 14 points apiece for Oklahoma City and Michael Berry had 10.
