Adrian, a 6’9 forward out of Morgantown, averaged 10.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game as a Senior for the Mountaineers during the 2016-2017 season on the 28-9 team that advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
In Best Virginia’s opening round win against Seven City Royalty, Adrian failed to score, but added 5 rebounds, one assist and one block while contributing outstanding defense off the bench. John Flowers, the General Manager/Player for Best Virginia, confirmed Adrian’s overseas offer, adding, “If anything came out of this TBT thing at least we got Nate an offer to play overseas…played great in the little bit of time he had and impressed a few coaches to get his pro career started.”
