MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia center Pat Forsythe will get a second crack at a freshman season this fall after the Big East Conference granted him a medical hardship waiver Wednesday.

Forsythe, a 6-foot-11 center from Brunswick, Ohio, appears in just seven games for the Mountaineers in his first season before a number of injuries kept him out of action.

He initially had back spasms that put him on the bench when the team traveled to play in the Las Vegas Classic and ultimately a stress fracture in his right ankle prematurely ended his season. The same foot bothered him as he finished his senior season in high school and never really got back to 100 percent.

In his first season, Forsythe won the second-string role behind Kilicli while averaging 2.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. His absence, combined with that of Kevin Noreen, made it difficult for WVU to find depth down low.

In March, Forsythe was arrested and charged with petit larceny for stealing debit cards from a fellow WVU student's wallet. He was released on a $2,500 bond.

Forsythe will have four seasons of eligibility remaining with the Mountaineers.
