The Huskie basketball team received great news yesterday, as they learned Illinois State transfer Jordan Threloff will be eligible to play this season instead of having to sit out a year. The NCAA granted Threloff a hardship waiver to play due to family reasons. Threloff, at 6'10", brings much needed size to the Huskie roster. He'll likely battle with Sacramento State transfer Pete Rakocevic for the starting center position. At ISU, Threloff averaged 2.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game. Northern Illinois was 5-25 last season, with a 3-13 record in the MAC.
