What's My Age Again? Report Calls Mouph's Age into Question

As you probably know by now, A Sporting News report came out yesterday that suggests that Mouphtaou Yarou is actually 25 years old based on a FIBA website that lists his date of birth as 6/26/1984 or six years older than  his age according to his official bio on Villanova's Athletic Website.  As stated in the article, Villanova doesn't anticipate this article or the FIBA information to be correct as his hometown is spelled incorrectly.  Jay Wright doesn't see this as an issue either as he has cleared Mouph to play in the opener against Fairleigh Dickinson on Friday.

Hopefully the report is as wrong as I think it is, but in the mean time.
