IOWA CITY — University of Iowa forward Dale Jones has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, UI men’s basketball head coach Fran McCaffery announced Thursday.

Jones now has two years of eligibility remaining.

Jones, 6-foot-7 and 227 pounds, suffered a second ACL injury to his right knee in three years on Dec. 1, 2015, six games into his junior season. The native of Waterloo averaged 5.5 points, while shooting 45 percent from 3-point range (9-of-20) for the Hawkeyes. He also averaged three rebounds before the season-ending ACL injury.

Jones suffered his first knee injury before his sophomore year at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. He transferred to the Hawkeyes after his red-shirt sophomore season (2015).
