Apr. 9—MORGANTOWN, W.. Va. — Bob Huggins has reached into the transfer portal for a second time, as Old Dominion point guard Malik Curry committed to the Mountaineers on Thursday.

Curry was a two-year starter with the Monarchs and averaged 15.7 points, 3.6 assists and shot 45.6 % from the floor this season.

The 6-foot-1 native of Wilmington, Del. will have just one season of eligibility remaining. He was an all-Conference USA second-team selection in 2021.

The Mountaineers also added 6-foot-9 senior forward Dimon Carrigan from Florida International University earlier this week.

Curry came to Old Dominion out of junior college, where he starred at Palm Beach State and was a second-team junior-college All-American.

In 23 games this season, Curry scored in double figures 22 times, including a season-high 27 against Carrigan and the Panthers.

With Curry's commitment, the Mountaineers still have one available scholarship remaining and could have more.

WVU guards Deuce McBride, Taz Sherman and Sean McNeil have all declared for the 2021 NBA Draft, but have kept their options open to return to school.
