After serving a four game "indefinite suspension" for violation of "unspecified team rules," Jonathan Holton has been reinstated to the West Virginia Basketball team.
Coach Huggins announced today that Jonathan Holton has been reinstated to the team. He missed the last four games due to suspension.— WVU Men's Basketball (@WVUhoops) February 11, 2016
Over the last four games without Holton, WVU managed to win a pair of games (at Iowa State and home against Baylor) sandwiched between two losses (at Florida and at Kansas). The Mountaineer depth was able to help cover for the loss of Holton, but his intensity on defense was still certainly missed. For the season, Holton has averaged 23.2 minutes, 9.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.
The Mountaineers are back in action this Saturday, February 13th at noon ET when they host the Horned Frogs from TCU. WVU won the first matchup 95-87.
