Posted: Updated:

With friends and family in attendance, Erik Stevenson put on a shooting clinic. 

The sophomore from Washington state scored 29 points for a new career high off 9/15 shooting. 

"He loves playing against good teams and good players, " said head coach Gregg Marshall. "He loves the man on man challenge. He really does. The better the team, the more heated the game is, the more intense the game is the better he plays." 

"You got to bring your top game, if you don't do that you're not going to have a good game," Stevenson said. "When we play these teams that adrenaline gets flowing and that the ball goes through the basket. Hopefully." 

Fellow sophomore Jamarius Burton finished with 16 points. 

The Shockers next host number 9 Memphis on Thursday night. Tip off is 6 pm on ESPN2.
