WVU G Erik Stevenson Praises Team’s Work Ethic, Promises Good Year



MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia guard Erik Stevenson spoke to the media on Monday for the first time as a Mountaineer. Stevenson, who last played at South Carolina, promises the team will have a good year.

“We’re going to have a good year, I promise,” Stevenson said on Monday. “I think we have a team of guys that love being in the gym, so that’s a recipe for a winning season.”

Stevenson went on to praise how much this group never complains about anything.

“We have guys that want to win. We live in the gym, we live in the weight room,” Stevenson said. “We never come in here early mornings and dread workouts. You never heard anybody complaining about it.”

Stevenson is entering his fifth season of college basketball, playing for Wichita State, Washington and South Carolina. During his senior year at Columbia, the 6-foot-4 guard averaged 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds. Stevenson noted that he loves West Virginia so far and the transition has been going great.
