WVU G Kerr Kriisa After Texas Win: ‘This Should Be The Expectation’

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — West Virginia broke a three-game losing streak on Saturday night, upsetting No. 25 Texas for their sixth win of the season. The Mountaineers celebrated after by dousing each other with water, mostly going on Pat Suemnick. WVU G Kerr Kriisa was very relieved about the win but added that this should be the expectation for WVU Basketball.

“We needed that win for sure. We have needed a couple of the last [games] already but we really mentally needed that win to show for ourselves and the people of West Virginia,” Kriisa said. “I’m really proud that we got that win just for them too but I’m just happy that we show what we can do and if everybody keeps staying on the same page.”

“This should be the expectation here. This shouldn’t be that we’re putting water [on everyone]. We go to the locker room and celebrate like crazy. Like this should be the expectation of West Virginia Basketball and with the talent that we have. But of course we celebrated like crazy,” Kriisa added.

West Virginia has struggled all season at 6-10 and with just an insane timeline since the resignation of Bob Huggins. This team has had bad luck but has also shown bad basketball on the floor this season. Prior to the Texas game, WVU was 1-4 in their last five games and was desperate to get back into the win column. Kriisa, who originally committed to West Virginia and Huggins last April, is realistic in what WVU’s expectations should be every year.

Kriisa ended Saturday night with 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting from three. The Arizona transfer had four rebounds and two assists as well in the Texas win.

WVU will look to continue the momentum they have into Oklahoma next week as they take on a ranked Sooners team on Wednesday night.
