WVU Guard RaeQuan Battle Doubtful vs. UMass



RaeQuan Battle

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — WVU G RaeQuan Battle is doubtful to play vs. UMass in the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic due to flu-like symptoms, the basketball program announced at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Battle was deemed eligible on Wednesday after Judge John Preston Bailey issued a TRO against the NCAA’s transfer rules. 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.

West Virginia and UMass will tip-off at the conclusion of the FAU-St. Bonaventure game.
