Ahmad was the team's third-leading scorer this season at 12 points per game and the third-leading rebounder at 5.8. They've lost 10 of their last 12 dating back to January 2, and are in the midst of a two-game skid. Harris, a junior, started in 17 of 22 games he appeared in, averaging 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds. It appears nearly certain that Harris will not be spending his final college year at WVU.
