MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – As the UConn Huskies come to play West Virginia in the Big East-Big 12 Battle matchup, on Wednesday, they will most likely be without Adama Sanogo and Tyrese Martin.
It was first reported by college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, on Friday.
UConn is now likely without both Tyrese Martin (wrist) & Adama Sanogo (abdominal) — for next week's games against West Virginia & St. Bonaventure as well as Grambling on Saturday.
Huskies have the deepest frontcourt in college basketball.

Sanogo is dealing with an abdominal injury and Martin injured his wrist.
Sanogo and Martin are the Huskies’ second and third leading scorers on the team this year. Sanogo, a 6-foot-9 forward, is averaging 15.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. Martin, a senior guard, is averaging 12.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
Luckily, for Dan Hurley and the rest of his team, they have seven other players that average 13.9 minutes or more.
Remember, WVU guard Sean McNeil is day-to-day with a lower back problem. McNeil could possibly miss the UConn game, as well.
