Ex-WVU F Jalen Bridges to Make Return to Morgantown on Jan. 11



Former West Virginia forward Jalen Bridges will make his return to Morgantown on Wednesday, Jan. 11 when his Baylor Bears come for a Big 12 matchup. WVU men’s basketball released their completed schedule for the 2022-23 season on Friday.

Bridges, a Fairmont native, entered the transfer portal in March after playing two seasons with West Virginia. Bridges was inserted into the starting lineup in the middle of his redshirt freshman season and contributed to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2021. In his second season, Bridges averaged 8.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 33 games. Bridges committed to Baylor in April, looking for a fresh start.

West Virginia and Baylor will meet for the first time in the 2022-23 season on Jan. 11 at the WVU Coliseum. The game is set to start at 7 p.m. on ESPN+.
