Player of the Game - BC

In a game filled with excellent performances, WVU's jack of all trades had a great all-around game to propel the Mountaineers to a 65-62 win over Boston College on Saturday.

Joe Herber was all over the floor during the Mountaineers' important conference win. The savvy sophomore scored ten points,snared eight rebounds, dished out seven assists and collected four steals in 38 minutes of action.

Herber hit three of his eight tries from the field, and added four free throws for his point total of ten. Perhaps more importantly, Herber played both guard and forward, filling in the Mountaineer rotation wherever he was needed. Herber even defended Eagle big man Craig Smith on several trips, and did an excellent job of keeping Smith away from the basket.

WVU improved their shooting to 44.4% from the field, and rallied from a six point deficit in the second half to secure the win. Along with Herber, Tyrone Sally (18 points), D'or Fischer (12 points, eight blocked shots), and Patrick Beilein (14 points) all played key roles in the win.

WVU, now 10-6 overall and 2-3 in conference play, travels to St. John's for another Big East game on Wednesday.
