MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — As West Virginia prepared for Saturday’s game against Big 12 bottom-feeder TCU on Saturday, coach Bob Huggins didn’t sound optimistic about having Terry Henderson available.
The Mountaineers third-leading scorer at 12.1 points per game, Henderson sat out the past two games with illness. Huggins said Thursday night he didn’t expect Henderson to to be well enough to face TCU, and the coach’s past-tense tone Friday in discussing the sophomore guard wasn’t any more encouraging.
“Terry did a lot of things for us,” Huggins said. “Obviously, Terry made shots, but Terry also was a pretty versatile defender. He was a guy you could put on a big three or he’s a guy who could guard a two. He changed some shots around the rim because of his athleticism, and blocked some shots. And I think he was really getting better at rebounding the ball, particularly on the offensive end.”
