MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – During WVU head coach Bob Huggins’ press conference on Friday morning, it was announced that West Virginia will plan on having a fully healthy team, and ready to go for Kansas State on Saturday.

Huggins was asked if his team has had any other problems since Taz Sherman, Gabe Osabuohien and Kobe Johnson entered health and safety protocol last week. Without the three rotation players, the Mountaineers fell to a ranked Texas team on the road last Saturday, 74-59.

“None,” Huggins said on Friday.

As for practicing and being physically ready? That may be a question mark, but Huggins and his staff will have all 14 players suiting up for KSU.

“Those guys have played enough and been around enough that they’ll tell me when they need a break,” Huggins said.
