Murray State's Aska cleared to return from injury 

Murray State forward Ivan Aska says he's been cleared to return after missing the last six games with a broken right hand for the nation's only undefeated men's Division I basketball team.

Aska expected positive news and says he couldn't sleep before his doctor's appointment on Monday morning. Aska is a starter and the leading rebounder for the 11th-ranked Racers, but broke the hand in the first half of a victory at Eastern Illinois on Dec. 30. The Racers (20-0, 8-0 Ohio Valley Conference) have a rematch with Eastern Illinois at home on Saturday.

Aska averaged 12.6 points and six rebounds in his first 14 games. The senior had played in 113 consecutive games before the injury.
