Oscar Tshiebwe unable to travel overseas with team

Oscar Tshiebwe, the 5 star recruit and McDonald’s All-American from Kennedy Catholic in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, was unable to travel with the basketball team due to visa restrictions, per John Antonik, Director of Athletic Content for WVU.

This news is particularly disappointing for West Virginia fans who were eager to see Tshiebwe in action and to see how he performs alongside Sophomore Derek Culver.  Tshiebwe will miss an important opportunity to gel with teammates and gain experience against top players in Spain.
