West Virginia point guard Darryl Bryant, who did not play Saturday in the Mountaineers' win over Kentucky because of a broken bone in his right foot, has been cleared to play in the Final Four.

"I might play the next game,'' Bryant said. "A shoe is being made to take all the pressure off the area. I probably will be able to play in the next game.''

Bryant put the odds of his playing at 90 percent.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "I can be effective. I'll be fine. It will be like nothing happened.''

Bryant, who averaged 9.3 points and 3.1 assists a game this season, broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot during practice Tuesday.

West Virginia advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 1959. West Virginia will play the winner of Sunday's Duke-Baylor South Regional final.
