Erik Stevenson Reflects on Season at West Virginia After NCAAT Loss



BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Following the round of 64 loss to Maryland in the NCAA Tournament, fifth-year senior guard Erik Stevenson reflected on his solo season at West Virginia.

“It’s over. You know what I mean? Yeah, man, it’s over. I don’t know what else to say. It’s a different feeling,” Stevenson said. “I can’t thank this program enough. I can’t thank coach Huggins enough.”

Stevenson made his NCAA Tournament debut on Thursday, finishing with nine points on 4-of-17 shooting. The Lacey, Wa. native had a career goal of reaching the Big Dance but the cancelation of March Madness in 2020 prevented that.

“Personally, didn’t finish it off how I wanted to,” Stevenson said. “But as a team, we got to where I wanted to be. Just happy I got there in my career to the tournament, I guess.”

Stevenson has had a wild collegiate career, playing for four different schools. Thanks to the transfer portal, Stevenson was able to come to West Virginia in his final season. Stevenson appeared in 34 games, averaging 15.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

“I don’t know what’s next, but I’m just happy I got to finish it out here in West Virginia,” Stevenson said.
