In this edition of the Hardwood Report, we tell you about different Mountaineers who led their teams to wins over the past couple of days, including Joe Alexander, Devin Ebanks and Darryl Truck Bryant.
Joe Alexander – Alexander saw action on Monday in his second game since going overseas and joining the defending Euroleague champs in Israel – Maccabi Tel-Aviv. He came off the bench and played 22 minutes, but still led the team in scoring with 17 to go along with eight rebounds.
Devin Ebanks – The Mexican league-leading Veracruz Red Hawks had a scare on Saturday night, but Ebanks led his team to a narrow two-point victory over Halcones, scoring 22 points.
Darryl Truck Bryant and Ales Chan – Two Mountaineers from different generations teamed up in the Czech Republic to lead BK Kolin to a win over MMCITE Brno. Bryant scored 24 points but Chan, who manned the middle at WVU from 2000-02, led the way with 27 points and 14 boards.
Deniz Kilicli – Anadolu Efes (Turkey) fell in overtime to Turk Telekom 91-86 on Saturday. Kilicli had nine points and four rebounds off the bench.
Marcu Goree – Goree had 12 points and four rebounds on Tuesday night for Atletico Aguada (Uruguay) in a loss.
