2 more West Virginia men’s hoops players seeking transfers
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Two more West Virginia men’s basketball players are looking to transfer and reduce coach Bob Huggins’ already thin roster for the 2019-20 season.
The school says forwards Lamont West and Andrew Gordon have put their names into the NCAA’s transfer portal.
West started about half of the Mountaineers’ games this season, averaging 11.1 points and 4.1 rebounds. Gordon averaged 2.3 points and 1.7 rebounds and played seven minutes per game.
They join guards James “Beetle” Bolden and Trey Doomes, who also are seeking transfers. Their departures would leave West Virginia with just nine players on its roster, although Huggins has signed two recruits for next season.
West Virginia finished last in the Big 12 this season. Forwards Wes Harris and Esa Ahmad were kicked off the team in February while forward Sagaba Konate missed the last three months of the season with a knee injury.
