Source: Beetle Bolden has left West Virginia basketball team

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — Following West Virginia’s 90-75 victory against Iowa State on Wednesday night, a team source said junior guard Beetle Bolden has left the team.

Bolden, out with a high ankle sprain since Jan. 26, wasn’t dismissed, the source said. It was his decision to step away.

Bolden, who averaged 12.2 points and connected on 30 3-pointers this season, was not present on the Mountaineers’ bench against the Cyclones.

Coach Bob Huggins said Tuesday that Bolden was set to graduate in May, meaning he could transfer to another school and be eligible immediately under the NCAA’s grad-transfer rule.

Bolden has dealt with numerous injuries this season, including torn ligaments in his shooting hand, an injured elbow and a left arm ailment during the Myrtle Beach Invitational.
