MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – It was announced by the West Virginia basketball program that leading-scorer Taz Sherman will miss the Texas Tech game on Saturday due to a concussion. Sherman has been in concussion protocol and has not practiced all week.

The fifth-year senior was hit in the head in the final minutes of the Baylor game, on Monday night. Sherman left the game and didn’t return.

On Thursday, WVU head coach Bob Huggins announced that Sherman was placed in concussion protocol and on Friday, he doubled-down on the announcement. Sherman’s timetable is still up in the air.

“He’s in concussion protocol and nobody knows really,” Huggins said. “There’s not anything we can say definitive.”

Through 20 games, Sherman is averaging 18.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals.
