MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia could be without its second leading scorer against No. 15 UConn, as guard Sean McNeil is still listed as day-to-day.
WVU head coach Bob Huggins didn’t have much to say about McNeil’s injury status, on Tuesday.
“It’s probably day-to-day, I would guess,” he said.
McNeil missed the game against Radford, last Saturday, with a lower back injury. The WVU Athletic Department announced the injury an hour before tip-off. After defeating the Highlanders 67-51, Huggins told the media that he did not know how McNeil got hurt, and had not talked to McNeil up to that point.
“I have no idea,” Huggins said on Saturday. “I haven’t been in the training room. I don’t know. I haven’t talked to him.”
West Virginia has a chance tomorrow to get the biggest win of the season, against UConn, but will do so without McNeil. The Huskies also are dealing with injury issues, with starters Adama Sanogo and Tyrese Martin both slated as out on Wednesday. Sanogo is dealing with an abdominal injury, while Martin is dealing with a wrist injury.
As the Mountaineers look to take down No. 15 UConn, on Wednesday, they may have to do it without McNeil. The senior is averaging 12.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists through seven games played in his senior campaign.
