Late news tonight as WVU's sparkplug, Jonathan Holton has been suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules:
Hearing it's indefinite in length but Holton won't play Saturday against Florida Saturday and is expected to miss two more games.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 29, 2016
That was fast. From WVU: "...senior forward Jonathan Holton has been suspended indefinitely from the team for a violation of team rules."— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 29, 2016
WVU not caught off guard. Knew about this yesterday, practiced today. Press release sent at 9 pm, precisely when Huggins' radio show ended.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 29, 2016
This is a huge blow to the Mountaineers. Even for a team that has counted on its depth to wear down opponents, Holton has been invaluable as the team has reached the upper echelon of the college hoops rankings thus far. Now we wait to see how long "indefinitely" actually is.
