MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – About an hour before West Virginia and No. 20 Texas tip off in Morgantown, WVU’s starting guard Kedrian “Keddy” Johnson took the court to warm up and stretch out.

Johnson missed the Iowa State game in Ames on Wednesday due to a hip injury.

“He’s been hurting for a long time. He’s sore, he can hardly walk,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said on Friday.

The senior guard has appeared in 27 games for the Mountaineers this season. Johnson is averaging 5.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game. Johnson has played a big role this season, giving teams nightmares on the defensive end, as well as scoring over 12 points on multiple occasions over the last couple of weeks.
