Pairing a little more patience with his widely acknowledged hustle, Hoyas fans have been pleased with Bile’s recent growth to play within himself and the team. This week, the honor is well deserved.
In the post-game press conference, the graduate transfer from Northwestern State spoke of his role in the win:
“It feels good. I am happy that we got the win … I feel that I am starting to get more comfortable with the system and knowing where I am going to attack and get my shots. It felt good to get this win for sure, to get back on the winning side.”
