Beetle Bolden delivers a few “Houdini moments” in Saturday’s loss

MORGANTOWN — Freshman forward Derek Culver can’t say he’s surprised by anything James “Beetle” Bolden does on the floor. Despite a quiet first half — Bolden was 0 for 2 from the floor in six minutes due to foul trouble — the junior guard finished with a career-high 31 points.

“That’s just what Beetle does. Beetle makes something out of nothing,” Culver said. “Everybody on the team calls him ‘The Magician.’ He had three buckets back-to-back-to-back, and a couple were like Houdini shots. But none of it was forced. That’s just natural to him.”
