The big junior, who played a career-high 38 minutes in the win, made something of a miraculous recovery from the ankle injury that kept him out of the win over Marshall. He spoke about his feelings on missing that contest, and moved on to discuss the progress of the young players on the team and their performance in the Cincinnati win.
One of those players, Jabarie Hinds, had an excellent game. He scored 12 points, grabbed five rebounds and had a 2-1 assist to turnover rating in just under 40 minutes of action. He discussed the challenges of defending Cincinnati's ball-screen offense and the importance of the win to the growing Mountaineer team.
