According to a report from WV Illustrated’s Anjelica Trinone, West Virginia big man Sagaba Konate will be a game-time decision for tonight’s quarterfinal matchup vs Texas Tech.
Konate has been out of the lineup nursing a knee injury since early December and many had ruled him out for the year. With the Mountaineers needing to win the Big 12 Championship to punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament, all help is needed.
In Konate’s last game vs Pitt, he arguably had his best game of the young season, displaying the Konate we were accustomed to seeing. He finished the game with 16 points, 9 rebounds and 7 blocks.
The Mountaineers will take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders tonight at 7pm on ESPN with the winner advancing to the semifinals to play the winner of Texas/Kansas.
