IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa power forward Dale Jones has been granted an extra year of eligibility.

Jones tore a ligament in his right knee for the second time in three years in December after playing just six games. He was averaging 5.5 rebounds and three rebounds for the Hawkeyes.

Jones, a junior college transfer, is expected to give Iowa’s thin frontcourt a major boost over the next two seasons. The 6-foot-7, 227-pound Jones will likely get plenty of playing time after the Hawkeyes lost center Adam Woodbury and forward Jarrod Uthoff to graduation.

Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery announced the NCAA’s decision Thursday.
