Following a great game against the Golden State Warriors, former WVU guard Miles “Deuce” McBride received praise from his current teammate Derrick Rose.

Rose won the NBA MVP award in 2010-11, becoming the youngest player to win the MVP award at the age of 22.

“Deuce is good player, man. His confidence is very high. Of course, his defense is top tier. We know how good he is.” ~Derrick Rose

McBride received a lot of playing time on Tuesday night against the Warriors, playing in 20 minutes. McBride went toe-to-toe with Stephen Curry at one point, guarding the two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA Finals winner. The Warriors defeated the New York Knicks, 105-96.

McBride finished with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting, making 2-threes. The Cincinnati, Ohio native had four rebounds and an assist.
