Former WVU G Erik Stevenson added to his highlight tape with a putback dunk for the Austin Spurs on Thursday night. Stevenson recorded 16 points, five rebounds and five assists in a 118-117 win over the South Bay Lakers.

Stevenson wrapped up his final year of eligibility at West Virginia last season, helping the Mountaineers return to the NCAA Tournament in March. Stevenson averaged 15.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists on 43 percent shooting from the field. The fifth-year senior played his best towards the end of the year, recording five straight 20-point-plus games at the end of February.

Stevenson is pursuing a professional career in basketball. The Lacey, Wa. native participated in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in April, competing in front of scouts. Stevenson worked out with multiple NBA teams this month, including the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers before being signed as an undrafted free agent. Following his participation in the NBA Summer League, Stevenson played in the TBT tournament with Best Virginia, WVU’s alumni team. Stevenson’s most memorable moment was hitting a game-winning three in the opening round and pointing to Bob Huggins, who was in attendance as a fan.
