Sad news for West Virginias as a player got missing

WEST HARTFORD, W.Va. Kerr Kriisa, a guard for West Virginia, received nine games of suspension for obtaining improper benefits.

On Tuesday, West Virginia declared the suspension.

The athletic department at West Virginia released a statement stating that it was notified in late August that Kriisa had acknowledged getting the advantages while attending Arizona. After three seasons with the Wildcats, Kriisa had two years of eligibility left when she arrived at West Virginia in April.

West Virginia said it worked with the NCAA to reach an appropriate resolution. Kriisa can continue to practice and travel with the team during his suspension.

“He accepts responsibility for his actions at Arizona and looks forward to joining his Mountaineer teammates on the floor,” the statement said.

Kriisa averaged 9.9 points and led the Pac-12 in assists with 5.1 per game last season.

West Virginia opens the season next Monday against Missouri State.
