College basketball: Bob Huggins says transfers not big issue at West Virginia

High Contrast Normal Version


West Virginia men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins said the Mountaineers will survive recent defections from the team.

Huggins held a news conference yesterday in Morgantown, W.Va., to address announcements by guards Eron Harris and Terry Henderson that they are transferring. In addition, Huggins revealed that forward Remi Dibo told an assistant coach that he plans to skip his senior season to play professionally in his native France.

The three players combined for 36 points per game.

Huggins said that player transfers happen all the time, adding that the Mountaineers will be “fine” and that returning players are excited about the 2014-15 season.

West Virginia went 17-16 last season and missed the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.
