The Mountaineers are building a backcourt without Juwan Staten or Gary Browne, but had added skill and size to the lineup

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia is looking to replace the loss of two graduated point guards, and one who was injured in the preseason. That's caused some line-up shuffling, as the Mountaineer backcourt will likely look much like it did in in the Big 12 Tournament last season.

Late in the regular season, and into the Big 12 postseason, an injured Juwan Staten and Gary Browne gave way to Jevon Carter at point for West Virginia. That's likley to be the configuration this season, with Tarik Phillip mixing in, after the injury to James "Beetle" Bolden. Above, Daxter Miles speaks to the play there, his role, the diffeent in the offense going through Devin Williams as opposed to the point guard and more.

A trimmed down Elijah Macon, below, discusses the changes to his body, his strength increase and update on his wrist issues, the offseason work of Williams and what he sees from Asa Ahmad, who head coach Bob Huggins said could play anywhere from the two through four spots.
