WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. (AP) - Purdue women’s basketball player Drey Mingo remains hospitalized with bacterial meningitis, but her condition has been upgraded to fair.

She was admitted three days ago in critical condition with inflamed membranes around the brain and spine. The illness can be fatal. Purdue said Friday Mingo’s family has been with her at the hospital.

The Boilermakers canceled a holiday tournament trip to Mexico. Purdue says no other players have shown signs of meningitis and the team is resuming practice Friday.

Mingo is a junior from Atlanta who is averaging 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds this season.
