PHILADELPHIA – West Virginia leading scorer Casey Mitchell returned to the lineup against Villanova, ending a suspension for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
Mitchell came of the bench late in the first half of Saturday's game. The Mountaineers went 2-1 without Mitchell. He's averaging 16.6 points per game, a team high.
Coach Bob Huggins didn't say why Mitchell, a 6-foot-4 senior guard, was suspended indefinitely on Jan. 24.
Mitchell also was suspended indefinitely by Huggins in October for violating team rules, though Mitchell didn't miss any games.
