West Virginia’s forward Pat Suemnick has made the decision to enter the transfer portal after spending the last two seasons in Morgantown. Under the mentorship of coaches Bob Huggins and Josh Eilert, Suemnick embraced his role on the team, particularly this season where he found himself playing a more significant role due to injuries. Despite the challenges, he showcased his skills, averaging 4.1 points and 2.6 rebounds per game across 21 appearances.

Throughout the season, Suemnick’s contributions were notable, especially in key matchups like the upset victory against Kansas, where he delivered a stellar performance, scoring 20 points and securing six rebounds. Expressing gratitude for his time with the Mountaineers, Suemnick took to social media to reflect on his journey, stating, “It has been an honor to suit up in the blue and gold for the past two years. I will cherish the memories and relationships I’ve built forever.”

As Suemnick embarks on the next chapter of his basketball career, he leaves behind a heartfelt message to the Mountaineer Nation, acknowledging the warm reception he received as a player from Green Bay, Wisconsin. His departure marks the fourth player from West Virginia to enter the transfer portal this offseason, joining Kerr Kriisa, Josiah Harris, and Seth Wilson. Despite the changes, Suemnick’s contributions and appreciation for his time in Morgantown will undoubtedly be remembered by fans and teammates alike.
