Trio's Take: Players Recap WVU's Win Over TCU

West Virginia's victory over TCU will be recalled as one in which freshmen made the majority of the key plays. But it was the steady play of Jonathan Holton, and the second half emergence of Devin Williams, that kept the Mountaineers within striking distance. Here, the two forwards, along with Jevon Carter, dissect the victory - and what it could mean for momentum.

Carter, who hit the game-winning free throws with less than a second to play in overtime, talks about achieving the childhood dream of winning a contest in that manner, how the early fouls affected his defensive play, WVU's press as a whole and his thought as the Mountaineers last offensive play unfolded.

Williams, who matched Juwan Staten with a team-high 18 points, recorded yet another double-double with a game-best 12 rebounds. The forward speaks to the inside play, West Virginia's mentality in the closing minutes and the boost the win gives headed to Kansas State and his ability to consistently finish on the block.

Holton, who head coach Bob Huggins said had his best overall game in recent memory, was able to avoid foul trouble until late to finish with 15 points and eight rebounds. Holton, below, noted the inside play of Williams, his ability to attack the rim and the on-court communication and play between himself and Staten.
