PITTSBURGH (AP) -The NCAA has rejected Pittsburgh forward Mike Cook's request for an extra year of eligibility.
The school appealed to the NCAA after Cook's senior season ended with a knee injury. Cook played in 11 games before the injury Dec. 20 against Duke.
Under NCAA rules, an extra year of eligibility is possible if the athlete plays 30 percent or fewer of the team's games. Pitt played 37 games last season - but that included six postseason games, which under NCAA rules count only as one combined game for medical redshirt purposes.
That means Cook played in 34 percent of the Panthers' games.
Cook graduated with a degree in communications last spring.
