Oscar Tshiebwe bound for Kentucky

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Former WVU post player Oscar Tshiebwe has landed in Lexington. Tshiebwe announced Sunday evening that he will be transferring to the University of Kentucky.

On January 1, WVU announced that Tshiebwe was stepping away from the Mountaineer program. Head coach Bob Huggins said that he would ‘absolutely not’ return. Tshiebwe entered the NCAA transfer portal last week.

Tshiebwe was in his second season with the Mountaineers. He was averaging 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds through 10 games this season.

Tshiebwe was one of the most high-profile recruits to enter the WVU program in recent years and he burst on the scene in his freshman season a year ago. The Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo native and Kennedy Catholic (PA) H.S. grad led the Mountaineers in scoring (11.2 points) and rebounding (9.3) as a freshman.
