MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Former Iowa guard Joe Toussaint has signed with West Virginia for the 2022-23 season.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins announced Toussaint’s signing Thursday.

Toussaint, who has two seasons of eligibility remaining, started 21 of 36 games last season. He led the Hawkeyes in assists and steals and averaged 4.3 points per game.

“Joe is a really good defender who can handle and pass the ball extremely well,” Huggins said in a statement. “He is really good in transition, and what we didn’t have last year in putting pressure on the ball, he will help fix that. He’s a hard-nosed, tough guard who is experienced, playing in almost 100 career games. I know our guys will certainly enjoy playing with him, and our fans will enjoy watching him compete.”

The signing was the second announced in as many days. On Wednesday Huggins announced the addition of junior college forward Mohamed Wague.
