Senior shooting guard Casey Mitchell has rejoined the West Virginia Mountaineer basketball team, according to WVU spokesman Bryan Messerly. Mitchell was the 2008 Junior College Player Of The Year. He struggled in his first season with the Mountaineers but made great strides as the season wore on. He is expected to see significant minutes this season sharing guard duties with Joe Mazzulla and Truck Bryant.â†µ
Mitchell was suspended by head coach Bob Huggins on October 15. The team has not announced the reason for Mitchell's suspension, but multiple sources have confirmed to SB Nation Pittsburgh that the suspension was for marijuana use.
