Minnesota's Fitzgerald gets 6th season from NCAA, has 2 left

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota forward Davonte Fitzgerald has been awarded a sixth season of eligibility by the NCAA after sitting out the last two years as a transfer and because of injury.

In announcing the news Tuesday, Gophers coach Richard Pitino said that Fitzgerald "deserves some good fortune."

Ineligible for the 2015-16 season following his transfer from Texas A&M, Fitzgerald tore his ACL and lateral and medial meniscus during fall practice about 7 1/2 months ago. The 6-foot-8, 220-pound Fitzgerald has yet to appear in a game with the Gophers.
