MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia women’s basketball is heading into the postseason one player short.

WVU coach Dawn Plitzuweit confirmed after WVU’s win over Oklahoma State on Wednesday that junior guard Savannah Samuel is departing the program.

“She has decided to step away,” Plitzuweit said.

Samuel joined the program ahead of the 2021-22 program as a transfer from Oregon State. She found consistent minutes under Mike Carey, playing 30 games and averaging 4.2 points per game as a sophomore.

Samuel finished her final campaign with WVU averaging 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.
