A graduation gift for Jonnie West

By Diamond Leung

West Virginia junior Jonnie West will not return to the team next season, with the seldom-used guard set to graduate this month, according to the Charleston Gazette.

But West will go out with a nice parting gift on top of his trip to the Final Four. His famous father, Jerry West, is set to deliver the commencement speech at the school's College of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences.

Jerry will be able to hand a degree to Jonnie.

"It’s something I can remember for the rest of my life and he'll remember for the rest of his life. I think it'll just be a fun experience," Jonnie told WVU Today.
