James Bolden Not Traveling With Team to Iowa State Game

James Bolden Not Traveling With Team to Iowa State Game

Outside of a few big games, this has not been the year that James Bolden was hoping for. Now it’s been reported that Bolden is not traveling with the team to the Iowa State game. It was reported by Mike Casazza.

Bolden injured his ankle in the loss to No. 1 Tennessee. After going up to haul in a lob pass, he came down hard and injured his right ankle. For the rest of the game he sat on the bench with his ankle wrapped in ice.

Bob Huggins said the injury first occurred in practice on Friday. “He sprained his ankle,” Huggins said. “He sprained it Friday, in practice.The kid has got a lot of guts.”

Beetle began the season dealing with stretched ligaments in his shooting hand. That was followed up with fully body camps and an injured left elbow and shoulder. Also during the season he has dealt with a hip pointer.

“I feel bad for him, because he hasn’t had a very good year, at least not the year we thought he was going to have,” Huggs said. “He hasn’t had a chance. It’s just every day it’s something.”

The Mountaineers are facing a very tough assignment Wednesday night against Iowa State. Even without Bolden it was going to be very tough to get a win. The game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. and will be on ESPNU.
