First Round Highlights: 14-seed Stephen F. Austin cuts down 3-seed West Virginia 70-56

03/18/2016

BROOKLYN, NY – There’s an oft-tossed-around adage that “pressing teams don’t like to get pressed themselves…”  Well, maybe there is some truth to that aphorism, as fourteenth-seeded Stephen F. Austin forced 22 Mountaineer turnovers on their way to a frenetic 70-56 upset over third-seeded West Virginia.

There was no mystery in the respective scouting reports going into the contest, as Lumberjack head coach Brad Underwood previously served under Bobby Huggins at Kansas State and employs a similar style of play.  But Underwood’s squad would not be phased by “Press Virginia,” only turning the ball over seven times.

Forward Thomas Walkup carried the load for the Lumberjacks, scoring 33 points–including a whopping 19-of-20 from the charity stripe–and pulling down nine boards.

Chris Carrino and Kelly Tripucka called the action on Westwood One Sports.
