VIDEO: WVU rifle looks to defend crown

After winning back-to-back national titles and three of the last six, the No. 1 West Virginia rifle team heads into this year's NCAA championships with plenty of confidence that it can win another title.

The Mountaineers were one of the eight teams selected to go to the NCAA championships, which will take place in Fairbanks, Alaska, on March 13-14. They're joined by the host team, Alaska-Fairbanks (the only team to beat West Virginia this season), Jacksonville State, Kentucky, Murray State, Nebraska, TCU and Air Force.

After the selection show Thursday, West Virginia head coach Jon Hammond and shooters Garrett Spurgeon and Maren Prediger talked about the Mountaineers' quest for a third consecutive national title and the pressure that comes with it.
