WVU's Ahmad set for return

Esa Ahmad will return Jan. 13 against Texas Tech.

West Virginia announced forward Esa Ahmad is eligible to return against Texas Tech on Jan. 13.

It'll be Ahmad's first action on the court this season after failing to meet NCAA requirements.

As a sophomore, Ahmad averaged 11.3 PPG and 4.3 RPG.

No. 6 West Virginia (13-1) has fared well without his presence, but the added depth should aid the Mountaineers in Big 12 play.
