MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – With about 10 minutes left in the game against Kansas State, West Virginia guard Malik Curry fell on the court, holding his right ankle. Curry landed on a teammates foot.

Curry was helped off the court and was not putting any pressure on his right leg. Curry was seen in a boot and in crutches after the game.

The fifth-year senior had four points on 2-of-5 shooting when he left the game. Curry has played a huge role on the bench this season for WVU, averaging 7.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

“I saw him walking down the hallway in crutches. He’ll play,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said after the game.
