West Virginia Mountaineers Basketball: Juwan Staten Will Return For His Senior Year

New, comments

Tweets by both Staten and Huggs indicate that Staten will indeed return for his senior season at WVU.

Crisis averted.

After the disappointing end to the men's basketball season in a loss to Georgetown in the NIT, and...Eron Harris declaring that he was going to transfer, there was rampant speculation (and fear among the fans) that Juwan Staten would be declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft.

With the established floor leader returning for the Mountaineers, a second straight roster implosion is not to be.

Couple this news with the influx of players like Elijah Macon and Jonathan Holton, among others, the high hopes for a successful season next school year are still in tact.

Perhaps most important though: This also means we have more time to work on our Juwan/Gaston parody song lyrics.
