WVU's leading three-point percentage shooter, Herber made four of his eight shots from the floor, but just 1-3 from beyond the arc.
Herber's contributions went far beyond his nine points, however. He grabbed a team-leading eight rebounds, dished out four assists and had one steal in 29 minutes of action.
Herber's play of the night came in the second half, when he slipped by the Eagle defense and tipped home a missed shot to draw West Virginia within three points just outside the 12 minute mark. On a night when the play of the Mountaineer front line ranged from bad to abysmal, however, it wasn't nearly enough.
