Watch: WVU G Kerr Kriisa Showcases Personality to Andy Katz



Kerr Kriisa

WVU G Kerr Kriisa was one of three Mountaineers to join interim HC Josh Eilert in Kansas City, Mo. for Big 12 media day. National analyst Andy Katz caught up with Kriisa, who was all dressed up for the occasion.

Kriisa showcased his personality in a joking matter as Katz asked him how he was going to prove him wrong yet again this season.

“I’m just going to let you see, I’m not going say anything. I’ll call you around March, early April. We’re probably going to have a beer and then we’ll talk, you’ll say you be wrong for three years in a row,” Kriisa told Katz.

Kriisa (6-foot-3) served as a full-time starter for the last two years under Tommy Lloyd. Kriisa, a native of Estonia, averaged 9.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists this past season. Kriisa was second in the Pac-12 in total assists and also shot 37 percent from three. Kriisa has appeared in the last two NCAA Tournaments for Arizona, reaching the Sweet-16 last year.

During the offseason, Kriisa was originally recruited by Bob Huggins and decided to re-open his recruitment after Huggins resigned. Kriisa committed back to West Virginia under Eilert’s staff.

“It was a messy week for sure. I committed to coach Bob Huggins and when he was gone, I felt everybody deserved a chance to recruit me again, including Josh Eilert. I need to make sure how Josh needs [of] me and wants to do here,” Kriisa said in early October.

Kriisa has two years of eligibility remaining.
