MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – (November 20, 2020) — As the countdown continues before the first West Virginia basketball game on Nov. 25 (as of now), we will preview the senior class for the Mountaineers.
- Forward / 6’7″ / 235 lbs.
- Toronto, Ontario
- University of Arkansas
Gabe Osabuohien spent his first two seasons at Arkansas under coach Mike Anderson. When the former Razorback suited up for WVU for the first time, he fit in perfectly.
Osabuohien is one of the best glue guys in the country. If there is a loose ball, expect the Canadian forward to already be on the ground before you even notice it.
Last season, in 18 minutes per game Osabuohien recorded 1.2 steals per game. The now-senior also had four rebounds a game.
Gabe Osabuohien will be a perfect fit onto this year’s Mountaineers roster. Osabuohien will be the energy needed at some points in the game.
- Guard / 6’4″ / 190 lbs.
- Missouri City, Texas
- Collin College
Like Osabuohien, Taz Sherman did not spend his first two years at West Virginia. Instead, Sherman played JUCO ball at Collin College.
The guard played current teammate Kedrian Johnson in JUCO play before their times here at WVU.
In his first season at West Virginia, Taz Sherman averaged 5.3 points in 13 minutes per game. The Texas native even got to start in four games for the Mountaineers.
Sherman was the highest three-point shooter on the team last year shooting 33 percent from three.
The seniors best shooting game was against Baylor, shooting 5/9. Sherman ended the game with 20 points.
Taz Sherman will once again be needed to come off the bench and make some shots this season for the Mountaineers.
