If you watched the telecast of UC's game at Pitt Dec. 31, you know that "The General" Bob Knight was highly complimentary of 7-foot-1 David Nyarsuk's second-half play off the bench.
Nyarsuk had several key rebounds to help the Bearcats chew the clock down along with some key bank shots and a dunk. In the box score, it might not have looked like much.
In terms of timing, it was clutch.
For that and some information on the first sport Nyarsuk ever played, I stopped by Mick Cronin's laboratory Thursday afternoon to speak with the tallest Bearcat ever. (Nyarsuk trivia: Believe it or not, David was the second-biggest player on Mountain State's roster last year. Teammate Paul Sturgess came off the bench at 7-foot-8.)
