Report: Pitt’s Nike Sibande Fully Cleared for 2022-23 Season



On Saturday, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that Pitt guard Nike Sibande has been fully cleared to compete in all basketball activities.

Sibande tore his ACL back in Nov. 2021 during an exhibition game against Gannon. In January, he then announced that he would be returning for the 2022-23 season.

“I am going to be back here,” Sibande said on the Jeff Capel Radio Show. “Riding with Capel, man, and trying to get us a championship.”

Sibande is a 6-foot-4 guard out of Indianapolis, IN who transferred to Pitt from Miami (OH). He has played four total seasons of college ball, averaging at least 13 points per game in three of those seasons.

“It’s been a grind for sure,” Sibande said about the rehabilitation process. “Definitely just getting up, waking up every morning doing different things. Lots of quad work, strengthening legs. getting in the pool, doing different stuff that I really never did before this injury.”
