05:30 PM ET 11.15 | The Oregon Ducks basketball program received some big news on Thursday afternoon. Following an investigation by the NCAA, Rice transfer Arsalan Kazemi has been cleared to play this season. He is just one of multiple impact players to leave Rice in the past year. Kazemi, a 6'7 senior out of Esfahan, Iran, averaged a double-double the past two years with Rice. He scored 12 points and brought down a little more than 10 rebounds a night with the Owls in 2011-12, and he should do wonders for a UO frontcourt that lacked depth coming into the season. For a team with hopes of competing for a Pac-12 title next March, his talent and experience will go a long way for head coach Dana Altman's high-post offense.
