Maybe missing the first six games of the season because of a NCAA suspension was difficult for Volodymyr Gerun. I will assume it was, but I don’t know for sure because he’s been kept at a distance, out of sight when not out of mind, thus far this season. Yet WVU played its seventh game Saturday and 10 Mountaineers had a hand in the win against Virginia Tech and Voldy, as the team calls him, was not among that group.
Tonight’s game is at Duquesne and figures to be a little easier, but to be quite honest, I have no idea what to expect and I can’t say for sure that this night is going to offer him a greater likelihood to play. And if it doesn’t happen tonight, it’s quite likely not happening Saturday at the Barclays Center against Michigan.
Turns out that waiting as an ineligible player might not be as hard as waiting as an eligible player.
