Huggins says 3 WVU players to transfer

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.

Huggins says the others who are transferring are 6-5 guard Aaron Brown of Darby, Pa., and 6-10 forward Volodymyr Gerun of the Ukraine. Brown appeared in 17 games, Gerun in seven. All three players are sophomores.

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.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Longtime coaches Gene Keady and Rollie Massimino, and former U.S. congressman Tom McMillen, headline the 2013 class that will be inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame Nov. 23.
