Mazey, Players Review Season, Preview Big 12

GRANVILLE, W.Va. - West Virginia won't threaten for a top half finish in the Big 12. But the Mountaineers, by taking two of three from Texas Tech, have locked a postseason spot and now await the seedings. Here, head coach Randy Mazey and players review the series, and preview the tournament.

Mazey, below, lauded the offensive prowess of the Red Raiders, who pounded out 11 hits in an eight-run outburst. He also detailed the start of BJ Myers and dissected the series, WVU's season and his expectations for the Big 12 Tournament and how West Virginia could threaten top seeds.

Justin Fox, a New Martinsville, W.Va. native and the lone non-Mazey recruited player on WVU's roster, talks about his Senior day experience, the defeat, his confidence going into the postseason and the mental approach taken by the Mountaineers as they head for Tulsa and the Big 12 Tournament. The third baseman also details Texas Tech's pitching, and the Raiders' ability to get the clutch hit.

KC Huth, who had a triple and a run scored to account for both West Virginia runs, discusses his game and the key at-bat in the eighth inning where he hit into a 4-6-3 double play with the bases loaded. The center fielder, like Fox, delves into WVU's psychology and confidence going to the Big 12 Tournament and if the team will be "scoreboard watching" to see who they will face in the opening round.
