Mountaineers in the Pros

Published

Following a back-to-back stint with the New York Knicks, former WVU guard Miles “Deuce” McBride scored 23 points on Saturday night.

McBride started his first summer league game, which resulted in a 103-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. McBride finished the game with 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field and 5-of-8 from three. The former Mountaineer also tallied up four rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes.

The 6-foot-2 rookie struggled on Thursday night, shooting 2-of-14 but McBride didn’t let that happen again, getting hot out of the gates.

McBride finished the first half with 16 points.

Once again, McBride was able to play stellar defense, giving his opponents headaches all game.

The Knicks are not scheduled to play their final summer league game until Monday at 7 p.m. against the Atlanta Hawks. Tip-off will be televised on ESPN3.
