Anderson Gets Medical Hardship Waiver
The NCAA has granted a 'hardship waiver' for Husson University guard Raheem Anderson that will allow him to play for the Ealges next season. That means the reigning NAC Player of the Year returns for a fifth year.
In Anderson's freshman season of 2013, after playing in eight games, he broke his fibula during the the holiday break and his season was over.
The NCAA allows a student-athlete to petition for another year of competition if certain 'hardship' requirements are met. Because Anderson played in only eight games and because he could not return for that season, a waiver has been granted.
Anderson gets to continue his brilliant career for the Eagles. He was named NAC and ECAC Player of the Year while helping to lead Husson to a 21-7 record and a NCAA playoff appearance. He averaged 26 PPG (737 points).
Anderson's 1,881 career points ranks #3 on the Husson all-time scoring list.
