Following No. 17 Texas handing West Virginia their second loss of the season, a couple of players went on social media to react to the game. Jalen Bridges, Pauly Paulicap and Taj Thweatt took their thoughts to Twitter on Saturday afternoon.

Bridges showed some leadership by stating that he was proud of the team going through adversity. West Virginia was without fifth-year seniors Taz Sherman and Gabe Osabuohien, and freshman Kobe Johnson due to COVID-19 protocols. Bridges finished with a team high of 18 points, the first time the sophomore forward has scored in double figures since Nov. 19 against Marquette. On Saturday, Bridges shot 7-of-11 from the field, shooting 4-of-7 from three.

Paulicap tweeted about staying close to people who believe in you. The DePaul transfer made his first career start for WVU, checking in the game for 13 minutes. Paulicap finished with two points, five rebounds and two blocks.

Thweatt’s tweet was a little cryptic. The sophomore forward could have been talking about the team, but Thweatt also changed his profile picture to a black screen. It’s something to keep an eye on, as Thweatt has struggled to find his role on this year’s team, appearing in just three games. Thweatt has a lot of potential, but just can’t find a spot in the rotation at the moment.
