Freshman guard Terry Henderson, who started the past three games for West Virginia, did not travel with the team to Iowa State for tonight’s game, MetroNews learned early Wednesday.
The WVU sports information department subsequently announced Henderson suffered a lower back injury.
On Tuesday night, after the team’s charter flight departed for Des Moines, Iowa, Henderson tweeted “everything happens for a reason!” He followed up earlier today with another tweet that read, “my brovas gone hold it down tonight I already know!”
Henderson also referenced being in an anthropology class on Wednesday, around the same time the Mountaineers were staging their walk-through at Hilton Coliseum in Ames.
Tipoff is 9 p.m. Eastern tonight. The game will be televised on ESPN2, with radio coverage on MetroNews affiliates throughout the state.
