MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia was upset by Monmouth at home in a buy game, falling 73-65. Following the game, the team had a heart-to-heart in the locker room following the loss. WVU interim HC Josh Eilert thinks it was a good thing to let emotions out and figure things out.
“Certainly this team has faced a lot of adversity and challenges thus far and this is one that we’re going to try to dissect and figure out, move on and try to learn from this,” Eilert said. “I told the guys I’m just as guilty as everybody else. I’ve got to figure out what I can do better, what I can do better for them.”
“We’ve got to figure this thing out and we will,” Eilert added.
Eilert mentioned that the only thing West Virginia can do is get up and move forward. WVU couldn’t do anything right on both sides of the floor while allowing Monmouth G Xander Rice to have a career night with 30 points on 50% shooting.
West Virginia tied the rebounding battle with Monmouth but did not make many hustle plays to make up for it. WVU F Quinn Slazinski, who played 34 minutes, talked about how this team didn’t play traditional West Virginia Basketball and that will change.
“We’re going to get killed for this, and there’s some truth behind it but we are here to win games,” Slazinski said. “This little hiccup we have, we are going to take it and learn from it. I love every single one of my teammates. We’re not going to get bullied again.”
West Virginia adds an early quad-four loss as they look to host Jacksonville State on Tuesday to finish their three-game home stand.
