Mountaineers in the news
Terry Henderson, one of three WVU’s players to average in double figures for the 2013-14 team, will transfer to another school. Henderson joins fellow guard Eron Harris as double-figure scorers leaving West Virginia via the transfer route. Henderson scored over 11 points a game as the Mountaineers finished with a 17-16 record. Harris scored almost 18 points per game.
The West Virginia baseball team was swept in three games at Kansas against the Jayhawks. With just this weekend remaining in the Big 12 regular season race, the Mountaineers are 27-20 overall, but 9-11 in the conference standings.
This weekend, the Mountaineers visit Lubbock, Texas to face Texas Tech in three single games. And then comes the conference tournament to be staged in Oklahoma City.
The three close losses to Kansas dimmed West Virginia’s chances of receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA national tournament where 64 teams will be selected to participate.
It would seem West Virginia would need to win at least two of the three games against the Red Raiders and then make some noise in the conference tournament to give itself some chance at being selected to the NCAA national tournament field.
