After cancer treatment Syracuse's Mangakahia cleared by NCAA

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) After missing last season for breast cancer treatment, Syracuse point guard Tiana Mangakahia has been granted an NCAA eligibility extension and is back with the Orange for her final year.

"I was just really happy," the 25-year-old Australian said Friday on a Zoom call. "I'm super excited."

Mangakahia was diagnosed in June 2019 and went through eight rounds of chemotherapy and two operations. The waiver allows her to return to the court this fall for the first time since March 2019.
