Jabarie Hinds is being looked to as a leader in the backcourt for West Virginia this year, and he's showing the ability to take on that role in summer league play. Hinds had 27 points for Oliverio's Peppers in the team's 73-66 loss to South Hills Audi on Wednesday, and also filled out the stat sheet across the board. He added three rebounds and two assists while making one of three three-point attempts and hitting all four of his free throws.
Incoming freshman Terry Henderson showed a flash of the outside shooting ability he was recruited for, hitting two of four attempts from beyond the arc for six points. He added one rebound but did not turn the ball over.
Juwan Staten and Aaron Brown combined for 19 points in SPK's 72-61 loss to UPMC. Staten was 5-10 from the field for 10 points, while Brown was 2-8 from the floor and 4-4 from the free throw line. Brown added two rebounds, and neither suffered a turnover. Eron Harris added five points on 2-5 shooting from the field, including one three-pointer. He also contributed two rebounds.
Pat Forsythe and Aric Dickerson also saw action in Steel City Tickets' 90-64 loss to GNC. Forsythe was 3-6 from the field with four rebounds, one assist and one turnover, while Dickerson scored three points and tallied one assist. Dickerson was 1-9 from the field, including 1-4 from three-point range.
On the opposite side of the floor for GNC, sophomore Keaton Miles had his best performance as a Mountaineer. Miles hit 10-14 shots from the field (good for 23 points) and added nine rebounds and two assists against just two turnovers.
League play continues on Monday, June 25.
