If there is one thing we have learned from the Northwestern transfer is that he does a lot of the little things that donโ€™t always show up in the box score. After the Hokies' win over Notre Dame where Beran had two points, three blocks, and six rebounds, three each at both ends of the floor, Mike Young spoke about Beran.

"I said in the locker room that he did not have his best game offensively,'' Young said. "He struggled in the first half. What shows up on here (scoresheet), doesn't always indicate your value and what you do to help your team win. He rebounded the basketball well."

Beran can shoot the ball as well as he did last week in Virginia Techโ€™s win at Louisville. He scored 12 points on four 3-pointers and when Lynn Kidd and Mylyjael Poteat are in the game, he spreads the floor offensively to open the inside up for them. Knocking down 3-pointers will limit over time how much his defender helps off of him. Heโ€™s averaging 6.2 points a game, four rebounds and 1.2 assists a night. He can be an X-factor at both ends of the floor for Tech in any given game.
