Morgantown, West Virginia – Senior guard Taz Sherman had 11 points, 2 assists and 2 rebounds in 27 minutes in West Virginia’s heart-breaking loss to Syracuse in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament.
Following the game, Sherman posted a brief message on his personal social media account about his future that leaves more questions than answers.
“Sad and disappointing. But I’m happy, I lived my dream playing in March Madness. I’m just a kid from Mo City who most people didn’t even think had a shot of being a Division I athlete.
A lot of people can’t do what I did and all I can say is thank you to the real ones.”
Sherman closed his message by adding, “12 out (maybe).”
Sherman, a senior, has the opportunity to return for one more season if he chooses because all student-athletes were granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. However, Sherman has expressed in the past that he would “like to go make money somewhere”, and that could mean him leaving West Virginia to play professionally overseas.
After a difficult ending to this season, perhaps his mind has changed and he will return to an already-stacked West Virginia roster for one more run at the national championship.
