Bob Huggins Names Starting Point Guard

Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, on “The Bob Huggins’ Show”, West Virginia head coach was asked by Tony Caridi about his depth chart for the Mountaineers at point guard.

Although Huggins was hesitant to answer, Caridi pressed him on it and Huggins replied, “(Keddy) Kedrian Johnson is the starter right now.  Followed by Malik (Curry) and then Kobe (Johnson).”

Johnson, a 6’3 senior out of Dallas, Texas, transferred to West Virginia last season from Temple College and was a reserve player for the Mountaineers, averaging 1.3 points and 0.8 rebounds per game

However, Johnson showed flashes of brilliance last season and has grown as a player during the offseason, according to Huggins.  “He’s gotten a lot better and has become a better shooter.  For being a little guy, Keddy really rebounds the ball well too.”

Johnson will likely be joined in the starting lineup by Sean McNeil, Taz Sherman, Jalen Bridges and either Gabe Osabuohien or Isaiah Cottrell.

The Mountaineers will host the Akron Zips in an exhibition on Friday, October 29th at 7:00 inside the WVU Coliseum.
