Nice to see them experience some success.March 14, 2019 at 7:54 am #86077
Congrats to the two big guys. They didn’t just fill in. Made the difference in the game. Unlikely heroes. Can someone step up tonight?March 14, 2019 at 8:16 am #86080
Great job by Logan and Andrew last night. I think that they can both be excellent reserve players next season. As far as someone stepping up in tonight’s game, I’m just hoping that the team shoots much better since they now have a game under their belt in KC.March 14, 2019 at 9:41 am #86081
That’s been a struggle for much of the year, and Texas Tech’s defense will make it even more difficult to achieve.
Sometimes getting a game in helps against a team that has yet to play – maybe that works in WVU’s favor.March 14, 2019 at 9:46 am #86084
Very pleasantly surprised to see how well Routt and Gordon performed. They definitely hustle, but the mindset of trying to score and make up for Culver foul trouble was great. McCabe and Haley once again had a strong second half showing and Lamont West made a move that I think we’ve all been waiting for inside the paint. These guys are playing well and although Texas Tech who is 26-5 and a definite Final Four candidate is next, I have really enjoyed this squad and it put a big happy smile on my face when I saw that toe touching the 3 point stripe. They EARNED that win last night even with their best player in foul trouble.
Culver should be well rested considering the limited time he was out there tonight, perhaps he shines. Matthews, McCabe, Haley, West, Knapper, let’s GO MOUNTAINEERS!

So proud of the both Routt and Gordon. They rose to the challenge and IMO it was the hustle referred to above by Alum2003 that delivered the good results for both of them. When you hustle and play with desire, good outcomes usually follow. This basic concept was lacking on this team before the purge, but these youngsters have changed the dynamic. One of the key changes that resulted by this new found truly competitive attitude by the youngsters is the improved hustle and desire exhibited of the last few games by West. That cannot be overstated because it was needed for him to step up his play.
