BGN Video: WVU - Buffalo Postgame

In a raucous locker room, Tarik Phillip explains his clutch three-pointer as West Virginia downed Buffalo in the NCAA Tournament

Tarik Phillip was the center of a loud locker room just after making the shot of the day to propel WVU to a 68-62 win. Phillip describes his clutch three, his thoughts after missing another last-second chance just a couple of minutes earlier, and the way in which different players have come up big for WVU all year.


Gary Browne discussed a slight reinjury to his ankle and the way in which the Mountaineers came up with big plays down the stretch to get the win. He also discussed the relationship between he and Juwan Staten, and the quick moment they shared after getting a big loose ball late in the game

Erik Martin gave credit to Buffalo for its play in making the game close, but thinks that a close game might help it as it moves on the the next round of the NCAA tournament. Martin, speaking exclusively to BlueGoldNews.com, discussed West Virginia's defensive choices down the stretch and how the man-to-man - a Mountaineer staple -- was the go-to move at the end.
