LAFAYETTE, La. - University of Houston forward Danrad Knowles was granted full relief from the NCAA earlier this week in a waiver filed by the school, head coach James Dickey announced Thursday.

With the NCAA's ruling, the Nassau, Bahamas, native will have three years of eligibility remaining following the 2013-14 season. He will be listed as a redshirt freshman during the 2013-14 campaign.

"We are grateful for the NCAA's quick ruling in this case," said Dickey, who is in his fourth year with the program. "Danrad has worked extremely hard on the court and in the classroom during the last two years, and I am confident he will make the most of this opportunity."

After sitting out practice and competition as a student at UH-Downtown in 2012-13, Knowles has competed in all but two games this year and ranks fifth on the team with 7.0 points per game. He also stands third among the Cougars with 4.0 rebounds per contest.

In the Cougars' most recent outing, Knowles posted a career-high 19 points, thanks to 6-of-8 shooting from the field and the free throw line.


UP NEXT
Knowles and his Houston teammates return to action at 7:05 p.m., Saturday, when they meet Louisiana-Lafayette inside the CAJUNDOME in Lafayette, La. It will be the team's final non-conference road game of the season.

Fans can hear Saturday's game live on 950 AM KPRC with Matt Thomas calling the play-by-play action and Basketball Hall of Famer Elvin Hayes providing analysis, starting 15 minutes before tipoff. Fans also can hear the game with a paid subscription to Cougar All-Access by clicking here.

 

 

Following Saturday's game, the Cougars will take a week off from their schedule before meeting crosstown-rival Rice at 3:30 p.m., Dec. 21, in the first game of the Lone Star Showcase inside the Toyota Center. Texas A&M meets Oklahoma at 6 p.m., Dec. 21, in the nightcap of that twinbill.
