December 18, 2018

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Suspended forward Derek Culver has been reinstated to West Virginia’s basketball team.

Coach Bob Huggins announced the freshman’s reinstatement Tuesday.

The 6-foot-10 Culver is a native of Youngstown, Ohio. He was suspended Nov. 15 for an undisclosed violation of team rules and has not played this season.

West Virginia (6-4) has lost two of its last three games and is looking for a spark on offense. Sagaba Konate, the team’s second-leading scorer, has missed two games with a sore knee, including an 83-70 loss to Rhode Island on Sunday.

The Mountaineers host Jacksonville State on Saturday.
