WVU's Leading Scorers Breakdown Their Win Over Kennesaw State

MORGNATOWN, W.Va.- Even after a 33-point victory, West Virginia didn't seemed satisfied. Daxter Miles and Devin Williams both had big days contributing for half of the team's total points, but even in victory there are lessons to take away, especially with No. 10 Virginia looming in three days.

Devin Williams was a rebound shy of what would have been his sixth double double this season. Instead he finished with a career high in points (26), in WVU's seventh straight win. Williams was too big and strong for any Kennesaw State defender, and used the sizable difference to create a lot of his own shots. West Virginia had 19 offensive rebounds, compared to the Owl's five, and that was a major reason the Mountaineers extended thier lead in the second half. Williams did account for four of West Virginia's 17 turnovers, which was one of his talking points after the game.  

Daxter Miles is developing into a versitile guard that can be trusted on both ends of the floor. He was the team's second leading scorer, behind Williams, and added four steals. Miles gave his feelings about WVU's evolving press, and explained why individual effort is crucial in containment.
