WVU Basketball Akok Akok

WVU F Akok Akok (health) will remain out vs. St. John’s on Friday. Akok was seen in street clothes 20 minutes before the 7 p.m. tipoff.

West Virginia interim HC Josh Eilert has mentioned that the team is close to hearing about Akok’s status this season.

Akok was admitted to Ruby Memorial Hospital after collapsing on the floor in the second half during the George Mason exhibition. Akok was on the court for about 13 minutes with the medical team before being stretchered out of the coliseum. According to teammate Quinn Slazinski, Akok was texting the team following their win. Eilert provided updates the following days mentioning that Akok was at home and was receiving treatment.

Akok is in his first season at West Virginia and his final year of college basketball. Akok transferred in from Georgetown and began his career at UConn.

West Virginia is currently without guard RaeQuan Battle as well after his waiver appeal was denied last Tuesday. WVU is also without guard Kerr Kriisa until Dec. 16 as he serves his nine-game suspension for receiving unauthorized benefits while enrolled at Arizona.

WVU Basketball will tip-off with St. John’s in the Big East-Big 12 Battle on Friday night as they look to get over .500.
