Oh, Canada! WVU's Buchanan Details Play

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia's Kadeisha Buchanan might be the world's best Young Player after capturing the award at the 2015 World Cup. But to WVU head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown and the Mountaineers, the defender is a steady, talented veteran expected to lead one of the best team's in school history.

Buchanan, back in Morgantown between the World Cup and Pan-Am games, joined Izo-Brown to detail her time with the Canadian national team, an experience topped individually when she was named the best Young Player in the world at halftime of the finals between Japan and the United States. Buchanan and WVU and Canadian teammate Ashley Lawrence helped the Canadians win their pool, and will now turn attention to a Mountaineer team primed for a regular or postseason title for the seventh season in a row. Below, Izzo-Brown and Buchanan talk about the national experiences, and dissect the demands and expectations of both Buchanan personally, and West Virginia as a team entering a fourth season in the Big 12.
