More Than Just A Role

He's viewed as the ultimate role player, but West Virginia forward Cam Thoroughman is carving out more than just a niche for himself with this year's Mountaineer basketball team.

When Cam Thoroughman hits the floor (both literally and figuratively) for West Virginia, he's expected to bring a few rebounds, some hard screens and defensive intensity. However, over the past couple of games, the rugged frontliner has also contributed offensively. Against Radford, Thoroughman, who saw twenty minutes of action, scored six points and hauled down eight rebounds. He added three assists a block and two steals, displaying all-around skills that haven't had the chance to blossom during an injury-plagued career.

Listen as Thoroughman, whom head caoch Bob Huggins describes as "our toughest player", describes the reasons for his increased offensive production and the possibility of even more time in the future.
