MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins says three players have asked for their release and plan to transfer.
Jabarie Hinds received the most playing time of the three, appearing in all 32 games last season. The 5-11 guard from Mount Vernon, N.Y., averaged 7.4 points per game.

The Mountaineers lost their last seven games of the season to finish 13-19, the worst record in Huggins’ 31 years as a head coach.
