SEC grants Mississippi State's Wendell Lewis a medical hardship

Mississippi State's Wendell Lewis has been granted another year of eligibility after applying for a medical hardship waiver, the school announced Tuesday.

"We are pleased that the SEC has granted Wendell another year of eligibility," Bulldogs 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 only appeared in eight games last season as a senior before fracturing his right patella during a practice. The 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 8.1 points and 4.9 rebounds at the time of the injury. He averaged 18.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in his final two games of the season.
