BGN Video: Mountaineer Match-ups

Daxter Miles and Jaysean Paige are welcoming Juwan Staten and Gary Browne back to the lineup, even though it will cut their playing time. Meanwhile, Devin Williams faces a mirror image of himself in Buffalo's Justin Moss -- a challenge that could have a big impact on Friday's Round of 64 NCAA contest.

Daxter Miles was his usual direct self when summing up any difficulties in adjusting to the differing roles West Virginia's guards might have with the duo's return.

"Nope," was his short answer in response to that issue. "We're going to stay aggressive. That's what the coaches want from me."

Devin Williams recounted some of the many clashes he has had with big, strong centers and power forwards this year, and noted that he will just go out and "do what he does". Perhaps unwittingly, he echoed Bob Huggins' mantra while anticipating the matchup with Buffalo's front line on Friday. One of those meetings will be with Bull frontliner Justin Moss, who has a similar build and game.

Jaysean Paige, despite having some ties to the Buffalo area, said that doesn't provide any extra motivation in the contest. Just playing in the NCAAs, and getting there after visualizing it throughout his career, is enough for the junior college guard.
