WVU Talks Miscues, Missed Chances

West Virginia is dangerously close to being forced to battle for the final Big 12 Tournament slot after Kansas took a second straight game - and the series - from the Mountaineers on Saturday. Here, head coach Randy Mazey, along with starter Ross Vance and Shaun Wood, dissect what's most plaguing WVU at this key point of the season.

Mazey, below, discusses the defensive issues, the streaks that occur in baseball, his team's mindset heading into the final game against Kansas and his thoughts on Vance's start - which will be recalled as arguably the most underrated of the season because of the early miscues.

Vance, who went six innings, didn't allow an earned run while striking out nine against just two walks. The junior details what was working for him, his best out pitch, his thoughts on the defense and what he thinks of the new baseball design used this season that has lowered the seams.

Wood, who hit a homer in the ninth to get WVU within the final margin, discusses the confidence - or lack thereof - at this point, the key to salvaging a game, battling to stay out of the Big 12 basement and his thoughts on Vance and the sporadic Mountaineer offense.
