Kerr Kriisa Explains Why He Chose West Virginia

Morgantown, West Virginia – Earlier today, Arizona transfer point guard Kerr Kriisa decided to continue his career at West Virginia University by committing to play for the Mountaineers.

Although Kriisa likely had many different options where he could play, he ultimately decided that West Virginia was the best fit.

Kriisa said the following today to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony: “I wanted to start from zero,” Kriisa said to Givony. “I didn’t want to go anywhere where I had pre-existing relationships. I need to challenge myself. I really liked how they recruited me. Jay Kuntz and the entire staff. When I saw the old truck that Bob Huggins is driving, I knew that guy was loyal. Now I need to start playing some defense.”

Kriisa averaged 9.9 points and PAC 12-best 5.1 assists last season for Arizona, but his defense reportedly needs a lot of work. Playing for Bob Huggins, he will practice under one of the best defensive coaches of all time.
