West Virginia continues push toward upcoming scrimmage, exhibition before Nov. 13 season-opener

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia hasn't settled on roles as much as it has players beginning to settle into roles.

The Mountaineers, off the Gold-Blue Debut, have started to learn what it likely can and cannot do this season in terms of personnel and potential individual and team development. But that education will really kick in this over the next few weeks, when WVU has a preseason scrimmage against Temple followed by the exhibition game against Glenville State on Nov. 6, the night prior to the home football game against Texas Tech. Head coach Bob Huggins, above, discusses the continued devlopment, the breakdown of plays and playing time in regards to possessions as opposed to sheer minutes, and the leadership devlopment of Devin Williams. Huggins also breaks down the point guard roles of Jevon Carter and Tarik Phillip - including the will to win of the latter.

Daxter Miles, below, breaks down his own game, his offseason developments, what he has seen from Carter and Phillip a the point, and the expectations of a team that won 25 games and reached the Sweet 16 a season ago, only to come away disappointed in the outcome against both Kentucky and the Big 12 Tournament match-up with Baylor.  Miles also details his study of the game, how he sees film now as opposed to last season, and how the "Press Virginia" approach could differ this season from the last.
