McGruder at home

It wasn’t as nice as playing in his hometown of Washington D.C., but for Rodney McGruder it was close. The K-State senior swingman played in front of his immediate family on Saturday, with several other friends and relatives making the 3-hour drive to Morgantown. McGruder said he had 20 well-wishers in the seats directly behind the Wildcats’ bench and was motivated to play well for them. He scored 17 points.

“They made the trip to come see me play and I appreciate that,” McGruder said. “It’s nice to get to play in front of them and see them as much as I do. I really appreciate them.”

No Staten

West Virginia played without the services of starting guard Juwan Staten. Coach Bob Huggins elected not to play him for off-court reasons. “He has to get on the same page as me or he isn’t going to play anymore,” Huggins said. Gary Browne started in his place, scoring seven points and grabbing five rebounds.

Worth noting

Bruce Weber’s playing rotation seems set at about eight players, though that number increased to 10 because of foul trouble on Saturday. Weber likes the mix he has created so far. “We need them all there,” Weber said. “There is a point where they are going to have to come up big. They need to keep a good attitude.” … Adrian Diaz briefly saw time against West Virginia in the second half, but he injured his ankle less than a minute after entering the game. He left the floor for treatment, then watched the remainder of the game from the bench. Weber said Diaz should be fine moving forward after the game.
