Members of West Virginia's 2013-14 men's basketball team continued to put up solid numbers in the Pittsburgh Pro Am Summer League on Monday.

Eron Harris, who is working hard to become a leader on and off the court for this year's edition of the Mountaineers, scored 17 points to help The Lair down SPK 100-96. Harris was 7-15 from the field (1-4 from 3-point range) and hit both of his free throws in the high scoring affair. He also contributed five points and a game high seven assists while committing three turnovers.

Incoming freshman Devin Williams added 14 points (7-12) and eight rebounds for The Lair. He also had an assist and did not suffer a turnover.

The overall result wasn't as good for Oliverio's Peppers, which dropped a 96-79 decision to SPK, but the Mountaineers on the squad performed well. Brandon Watkins recorded 13 points (5-12) and added seven rebounds, while Nathan Adrian contributed an eight and eight night. Adrian was 3-6 from the field (2-5) and hadd four assists, while Watkins as 3-4 from the free throw line and had an assist. Neither committed a turnover.

Terry Henderson had a bit of an off shooting night, but still scored eight points and dished out eight assists while gathering four rebounds. He was 3-11 (1-4) from the field, and had four turnovers on the evening. Walk-on Brett Morris made one of his three shot attempts to account for two points, and he also had three assists and no turnovers.

In all, WVU's players protected the ball well, which is an encouraging sign in a league where up and down play dominates. The six Mountaineers committed just seven turnovers all, and perhaps more encouragingly, the freshmen did not have a giveaway.

Action in the league takes a break for the rest of the week fo the Fourth of July holiday. The schedule resumes next Monday with The Lair taking on SPK at 7:00 p.m. at the Greentree Sportsplex.
