MORGANTOWN - According to an official release, WVU women’s basketball junior guard Tynice Martin sustained a foot injury at the USA Basketball U23 National Team Trials on August 3, 2017, in Colorado Springs. Martin had surgery last week and is expected to return to the court in November.

Martin averaged 18.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game last season for the Mountaineers. She averaged 27 points per game in the Big 12 Tournament and was named Most Outstanding Player.

She released a video statement on social media earlier today:

“Hi Mountaineer fans, this is Tynice Martin. I wanted to let everyone know about my injury that happened at USA Basketball Team Trials. On the second day, I injured my foot and had to get surgery in Colorado Springs. The doctors are telling me I will be back and ready to go in November. A little road block, but I’ll be back shortly. See everyone soon. Let’s Go Mountaineers!”

“We feel confident she’ll be back soon for us,” added coach Mike Carey. “Our main concern right now is to get her back healthy again and ready to go for the second semester.

The women's basketball team opens the 2017-18 season on Friday, November 10 against Central Connecticut State.
