Much Maligned WVU Senior Guard Reinstated
Back in August WVU women’s basketball senior guard Tynice Martin was suspended indefinitely from the team. This was after she averaged 17.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game and shot 42% from three-point range.
Despite having an opportunity to be drafted in the WNBA Draft, Martin decided to return for her season after it ended in disappointing fashion with a loss to Northwestern in the NIT. The following statement was released by WVU with regards to her suspension:
“West Virginia University women’s basketball senior guard Tynice Martin has been suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team rules.”
At the time of the suspension, there was a lot of speculation going around that we may have seen the last of Tynice Martin in a Mountainer uniform.
That turned out to not be the case.
Thursday evening Bob Hertzel tweeted that Tynice Martin has been reinstated to the West Virginia University women’s basketball team.

This was just hours after The Dominion Post reported that Martin pleaded no contest to a battery charge.
The first team All-Big 12 guard will be back for the 2019-2020 season, but did not play in the WVU season opener against St. Francis (PA. West Virginia won by a final score of 74-45.
