EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Oregon says Rice transfer Arsalan Kazemi is eligible to play for the Ducks this season.

The 6-foot-7 forward was granted a waiver from the NCAA to play this season at Oregon after transferring from Rice in September. Normally players have to sit out a season before they are allowed to play.

Kazemi averaged 12.1 points and 10.2 rebounds a game last season for Rice. He is one of six players who transferred out of the program.

Kazemi will be available to play Friday when the Oregon (2-0) hosts Vanderbilt.
