Terry Henderson Will Transfer from WVU

MORGANTOWN - Bob Huggins announced on Friday that rising junior guard Terry Henderson will transfer from West Virginia University. 

"We have enjoyed Terry and his contributions to Mountaineer basketball," Huggins said in a release from WVU. "We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Henderson now joins Eron Harris as two players to have transferred from the program following a disappointing end to the 2013-14 campaign. In 28 games this past season, Henderson averaged 11.7 points. 

Henderson and Harris came into their sophomore seasons with high expectations after both burst onto the scene with solid and promising freshman performances. After bowing out of the Big 12 tournament with a 66-49 loss to Texas, Henderson seemed particularly despondent as he took questions in his post game interview. 

"I'm not used to losing and I can't keep losing," Henderson said at the time. "I can't keep doing this."

Huggins signed JUCO guard Tarik Phillip after losing Harris in late March and WVU will add freshmen guards Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles in the fall. Still, Harris and Henderson were two of the Mountaineers' three most effective scorers last season and their production will certainly be missed as WVU looks to get back into the NCAA Tournament after a two-year dry spell. 

With no consistency on the roster, there is no consistency on the court. West Virginia returns athletes next season, but many will still be young or brand new to the program and Huggins' coaching style. Losing veteran leadership from someone like Henderson will hurt the growth of a team looking to improve on a 17-16 overall record.
