Schifino Eligible, Provides Boost To Backcourt

After a week that had Mountaineer fans holding their breath, the NCAA Clearinghouse declared freshman guard Drew Schifino eligible on Thursday.

Schifino, who missed five practice sessions while waiting for the Clearhinghouse to do whatever it is they do, will begin work with his teammates immediately.

Schifino, who should provide immediate scoring punch, is also expected to be a nice counterpart to jump shooting incumbent Lionel Armstead. Schifino excels at putting the ball on the floor to create his own shot.
