I dont know what wed do without him. We run everything through him. You watch him and then you watch everybody else, it looks like everybody else has their feet in cement. He wants to win, he wants to do things right.Adrian set a career high for rebounds in this one, and his point total was his highest since getting 16 on Dec. 29, 2013 against William & Mary.Im just listening to coach and what he has to teach me and doing the best I can, the 6-foot-9 forward said.

Its two bad games back to back where hes had six turnovers and thats where we got to get him, from turning the ball over so much, because if youre going to have the ball in your hand that much, you got to make good decisions.POLL IMPLICATIONSWest Virginia went up one spot in the AP Top 25 on Monday due to Connecticuts loss to Wagner on Friday.
