BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

West Virginia begins a difficult four-game stretch on Saturday without starting forward Jonathan Holton.

The 6-foot-7 senior was suspended indefinitely on Thursday night for a violation of team rules.

Holton is averaging 9.7 points and 7.5 rebounds, while recording 1.1 steals per game as part of West Virginia's full-court press defense.

The Mountaineers face Florida on Saturday in the Big 12/SEC Challenge before returning to conference to play where they will face three consecutive ranked teams: Iowa State, Baylor and Kansas.
