Iba naman ang kaso ni Parks. Parks finished his 11th grade in Memphis, then enrolled in NU for college right away. Ang bone of contention is not the playing for the NT, but the number of years needed for residency. For all intents and purposes, Parks got his last HS credits abroad and is to be regarded as a transferee; e.g., requiring two years' residency. Whether he played for the national team or not does not have bearing on his eligibility, and neither should it have any bearing on Slaughter's case.
Ang case ni Torres, similar din kay Brian Organ, who I understand has left your lair. Nag-overlap ang 12th grade niya at start ng first term sa DLSU, kaya sa 2nd term na siya nag-enroll. If that was going to be the case for all incoming freshmen who finished HS in a September-June system, then we might as well let them sit out just three semesters instead of two school years (four semesters in other schools).
Correction: Norbert Torres played in the SEABA U-18 while he was in HS, e.g., in June. He played in the FIBA-Asia U-18 from August to September 2008, which, if I remember correctly, was after the DLSU enrollment schedule of 28 July to August 6 (see http://www.dlsu.edu.ph/offices/regis...lendar0809.pdf). Was he already enrolled in DLSU by that time?
