Ex-Dayton guard Staten heading to WVU

Former Dayton guard Juwan Staten is transferring to West

Virginia.

Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins says Monday that Staten has

signed a grant-in-aid to attend West Virginia. The 6-foot,

180-pound Staten will have to sit out the 2011-12 season due to

NCAA transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility

remaining.

Staten started 34 games as a freshman for the Flyers last

season. He averaged 8.5 points and 5.4 assists in 29 minutes per

game.

Huggins announced last month that former LaSalle center Aaric

Murray also was transferring to the school. Murray led LaSalle in

scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.
