MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – During Bob Huggins’ press conference on Monday, WVU’s head coach gave an update on Taz Sherman’s concussion. Huggins told the media that Sherman has not practiced still, but he won’t hold him back if he does pass his tests.

“[Sherman] didn’t practice yesterday,” Huggins said. “I didn’t really talk to the doctor [on Monday].”

Sherman has been sidelined for the past week, after sustaining a concussion in the Baylor game. Huggins announced that Sherman had entered concussion protocol laster in the week, while WVU’s leading-scorer missed the Texas Tech game on Saturday afternoon.

Sherman, a fifth-year senior from Missouri City, Texas, has led the Mountaineers on offense all season, averaging 18.9 points through 20 games. Sherman is shooting 43 percent from the field and averaging 2.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals as well.

Seems like Sherman will be a game-time decision once again on Tuesday night against Iowa State.
