MORGANTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - WVU men’s basketball head coach Bob Huggins has announced that sophomore forward Oscar Tshiebwe is stepping away from the team due to personal reasons and will not return this season.

Tshiebwe is averaging 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in 10 games this year. On Tuesday, he had 12 points and 15 rebounds in the Mountaineers’ 73–51 win over Northeastern.

“Oscar has our full support, and we certainly wish him the best during this time,” Huggins said.
