MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – For the past two weeks, West Virginia guard Taz Sherman has been dealing with the after effects of the COVID-19 virus. On Monday, WVU head coach Bob Huggins said that Sherman is still not 100 percent.

“He [Sherman] didn’t look like he was 100 percent [on Sunday],” Huggins said on Monday. “We tried to get him out as much as we could, but still have him in enough where he knew what was going on.”

Against Kansas over the weekend, Sherman had his worst outing of the season, finishing with five points on 1-of-9 shooting. It marked the only game this season that the fifth-year senior has not reached double figures.

Sherman missed the Texas game on New Year’s Day due to being placed in COVID-19 health and safety protocols a few days prior. Sherman returned the next game, but hasn’t looked like his self from earlier in the season.

Sherman is averaging 18.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.6 steals in 15 games.
