WVU G RaeQuan Battle Seen Warming Up Before Radford Game



WVU G RaeQuan Battle

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU G RaeQuan Battle was seen warming up an hour prior to the Radford game on Wednesday night. Battle will look to make his season debut with West Virginia after missing the first 10 games.

Battle most recently missed the UMass game on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms. WVU interim HC Josh Eilert mentioned that Battle returned to practice early in the week.

Battle testified in court last week, which resulted in Judge John P. Bailey issuing a temporary restraining order against the NCAA’s transfer rules. Battle, as well as WVU G Noah Farrakhan, are now eligible for the rest of the season.

Battle transferred from Montana State this April after averaging 17.7 points on 47% shooting for the Bobcats. Battle led Montana State to the NCAA Tournament, giving 3-seed Kansas State a game in the first round. Battle and the Bobcats fell short but the current Mountaineer scored a game-high 27 points. Battle has transferred multiple times as an undergraduate student-athlete and was not a grad transfer after his summer session.

West Virginia will tipoff with Radford at 7 p.m. at the WVU Coliseum on Wednesday as they welcome back former guard and current Highlanders HC Darris Nichols.
