NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt center Josh Henderson has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA after missing most of two seasons with separate injuries.

Vanderbilt athletic department spokesman Andy Boggs confirmed Wednesday that the NCAA has given Henderson the permission. The Tennessean first reported the news.

Henderson played only eight games as a redshirt freshman in 2011-12 because of a stress fracture in his right foot. He also appeared in only eight games in 2013-14 before injuring his left knee.

The 6-foot-11 Henderson averaged 2.2 points and 1.2 rebounds per game while helping Vanderbilt go 21-14 and reach the NIT quarterfinals this season. He played 24 games and made two starts.
