On Thursday night, Stevenson landed awkwardly after attempting a contested layup against Purdue. The fifth-year senior limped on one foot down the court to get back on defense before falling down. Stevenson later returned to the game after being treated and finished with a team-high of 17 points.
After the Purdue game, WVU head coach Bob Huggins said that Stevenson sprained his foot but ‘it’s not a big deal.’
