As West Virginia guard Taz Sherman recorded a career high 29 points on Monday night against No. 8 Baylor, Sherman was hit in the jaw, exiting the game with three minutes left and not returning. After the game, Sherman tweeted a thumbs up emoji.

Once Sherman left the game, Baylor proceeded to go on a run and close the game out, winning 81-77.

“I’m not sure what to say. We got a guy in laying there with a concussion,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said on the postgame radio show. “He’s dribbling the ball and he gets a concussion and they don’t even stop the play.”

During Huggins’ press conference with the media, he didn’t get into details about his opinion on Sherman’s injury, but did offer up some prayers for his guard.

“I just pray that he is okay,” Huggins mentioned to the media.

Sherman’s career high eclipsed his former mark of 28 points against Eastern Kentucky, back on Nov. 26. On Monday, Sherman shot 10-of-15 from the field, making 6-three’s. Sherman now averages 18.5 points per game.
