Q: What are the redshirt rules in college basketball? It seems that players can play in a few games, even without injury, and still get a redshirt. Isn't that what Travon Woodall did last year, and Talib Zanna might do this year?

FITTIPALDO: A player can take a redshirt if he plays in fewer than 20 percent of his team's total games and there is a documented pre-existing injury that prevents said player from competing the rest of the season. Usually about this time of the year, Pitt coach Jamie Dixon begins to mention to reporters how some freshmen have injuries that are keeping them from practicing.
