West Virginia's Joe Mazzulla To Request Medical Redshirt

It looks like RI native Joe Mazzulla has been shut down for the season and will request a medical redshirt, via The Journal :

Huggins said Tuesday that in all probability Joe Mazzulla will apply for amedical redshirt as a member of the West Virginia University men's basketballteam, but he can't do that until the season ends. The junior point guard has played in only seven games this year, and Huggins said whether Mazzulla would return to resume play depends on how his shoulder is progressing. He still could save the year if he plays in no more games in 2008-09. Mazzulla can't raise his arm to a level with the shoulder because of a problem traced back to his birth. "You can't really tell whether his shoulder has made any progress in the last two weeks or so," Huggins said. "It's a total rest situation." Mazzulla last saw action in the Davidson game on Dec. 9. For the seven games, he averaged 5.6 points per game and had 26 assists and 16 rebounds.

  1. I like Mazzulla, he's got a nice game. Sad to see him hurt for the season.


  2. I miss seeing him on the court. He is a real "hustler" and gives it 110% every game.

  3. one word comes to mind when i think of little joey mazzulla : "Savvy" ... I hope he gets that red shirt, would be great to see him get two more years...
