Erik Stevenson Apologizes to Mountaineer Nation
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU G Erik Stevenson began his press conference with an apology to the program and fanbase for his actions in the second half against Oklahoma State. Stevenson picked up a technical foul for a gesture towards the crowd on Monday night.
“I know my actions did not represent this program the way it should be. This coaching staff, this fanbase, my teammates. Just wanted to apologize for that. I know how serious it is and I know my actions prevented from me staying in the game which essentially could’ve helped us win both of those ballgames. Those are things that I just don’t do on a regular basis. It doesn’t look good on my part. I just wanted to clarify my apologizes for those actions to especially this fanbase and coach Huggs. With that being said, I just want to apologize, and I’d like to move on from it, put it in the past.”
Stevenson is ready to move and focus on hosting No. 3 Kansas on Saturday night. Stevenson is West Virginia’s leading scorer through 14 games, averaging 14.1 points.
