From the NCAA website. An athlete qualifies for a medical hardship if..
1. The athlete participated in less than 30% of the team's contests
2. The injury occurred prior to the first competition of the 2nd half of the season
3. An athlete who sustains an injury in the first half of the season and then is re-injured after playing a game in the second half of the season is not eligible for a medical hardship.
Bottom line is that a basketball player can get a medical hardship as long as they play in less than 10 games and all of those games occurred in the first half of the season.
Dendy played in the final game of the season for Hills, so according to this he wouldn't be eligible for a 3rd year.
