Development Path

Both Chase Connor and Elijah Macon are entering their first true Big 12 season. And though both rely on far different traits while playing their trade, each acknowledged the need for West Virginia - and themselves - to be able to drive the ball better.

Connor, who made three of six shots from three-point range for his PGT team in a loss to Macon's System One squad in one of Wednesday's Pittsburgh Pro-Am summer league games, said he has focused in on "bouncing it better" and being able to hit jump shots. he also described Macon's game, and the forward as being "a monster."

Macon said he is trying to develop a go-to low post scoring move, and discusses keeping his head up when dribbling and trying to find the open man when handling. He also speaks to the smaller court size - none of Montour's courts are the full-size collegiate used in the Coliseum and WVU's practice facility - and how that impacts him as a post player.
