Player Reaction: NCAA Tournament Bid

Juwan Staten and Gary Browne are primed to return for West Virginia's first NCAA Tournament bid in three seasons. Here, the senior guards detail their thoughts, the team reaction, the match-up and playing on Friday instead of Thursday - giving both an extra day to heal injuries.

First, Staten, who insists he will be full go for the second round match-up with Buffalo, speaks to playing in his home state of Ohio, in Columbus, his thoughts on the Bulls' underrated guards, what the postseason appearance means to him and gives an update on his health status, as well as Kentucky being the top seed in the region.

Browne, who also didn't see action in the Big 12 Championship loss to Baylor, details what he likes about the location, what it means to get Staten back home as Browne was in Puerto Rico, his dissection of the bracket difficulty and more about the NCAA bid out of the Midwest Region on March 20.
