Player of the Game - JMU

In his first game as a Mountaineer, D'or Fischer set a new school record to help spark his team to victory and earn the first player of the game honor of the 2003-04 season.

Fischer, who came to WVU with a deserved reputation as a shot blocker, delivered on that promise in WVU's 74-57 win over James Madison. The lanky 6-10 center rejected eight Duke shots, breaking the single-game record of seven held by Marcus Goree, who tlalied that number twice.

Fischer was by no means one-dimensional, however. Playing in front of his mother, the gregarious junior scored 14 points on 7-9 shooting from the field, and added six rebounds while committing just one turnover. It was an impressive debut for the emotional Fischer, who changed almost as many James Madison shots as he actually blocked.
