Old Faces, New Roles For WVU Trio

With the loss of Eron Harris and Terry Henderson - two of the teams top three scorers - West Virginia has its hands full trying to find replacement scorers, if not leaders.

Nathan Adrian - who averaged just under six points per game last season - will be a large component of WVU's possible success this upcoming season. The forward started a handful of games last year. This year Adrian will be needed a scorer and a leader on the court.

Devin Williams, at times, showed flashes of his extreme potential. Scoring 22 points and pulling down 13 rebounds against Kansas, Williams showed he could play with the elitle level talent. Dominant at times, and now in his second year starting, Williams will be viewed as a leader on and off the court.

Finally, Gary Browne has proven to be a prime example of unselfish play. Now, in his final year in a Mountaineer jersey, Browne is ready to play more minutes, and have a bigger impact for this year's team. He discussed how the cohesion of this squad is important, and why this team is already prepared mentally for the season.
