MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Nathan Adrian, who played his high school basketball only a few miles away from the WVU Coliseum, sank 6-of-10 from 3-point range as West Virginia downed Fairmont State 89-70 in an exhibition.

The former Morgantown High standout, a 6-foot-9 freshman whose outside shooting could be valuable this season, appeared in the starting lineup and scored 21 points as the Mountaineers overcame a depleted bench.

“With Terry (Henderson) out and Remi (Dibo) out, I felt I needed to shoot a little more—but I didn’t mind that,” Adrian joked.

    Good game by Harris and Adrian plus Williams rebounding better chemistry on team. Big learning curve ahead. Please get off Huggins back.

      clair, I think that you will always find guys that, win or lose, just have to ride the coach. Not enough home growns...too many home growns. The beat goes on. Remember the kid Hugs recruited from the southern part of the state a couple years ago... the next Jerry West,you know, the one who was too busy getting high to play ball.

    May be that Huggs will find out wva does have some good players if only they had a chance to prove it. I think there are a couple of other walk ons that may surprise if given the chance.

    Good to see a WV boy on the team. Sounds like a future NBA prospect.
