Mississippi State got some good news on Tuesday, as Wendell Lewis was officially grant another year of eligibility.
Lewis played the first eight games last season before fracturing his right patella during practice. Since he played in less that 30% of Mississippi State’s games, he was eligible to receive a medical redshirt.
“We are pleased that the SEC has granted Wendell another year of eligibility,” MSU coach Rick Ray said. “I really believe that Wendell needed another year in our program to improve on the court because he was just beginning to make strides right before his injury after coming off two straight games where he scored career highs. This move is beneficial for both Wendell and our basketball program.”
Lewis, a 6-foot-9 forward, was averaging 8.1 points and 4.9 boards before the injury.
