MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia head basketball coach Bob Huggins announced today that freshman Darrious Curry has been medically disqualified.
“Darrious has had extensive medical evaluations by numerous physicians, and they concluded it was in his best interest to no longer play basketball,” says Huggins. “He has been medically disqualified based on a medical condition that we cannot disclose due to student privacy laws.
“We’re in the process of obtaining a medical exemption, and we expect Darrious to always be a part of the Mountaineer family.”
A native of Houston, Texas, Curry averaged 19 points, seven rebounds and two assists per game as a senior at Stratford High.
