West Virginia's Daxter Miles and Devin Williams Break Down The Game Plan Against No. 15 Baylor

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia has key match-ups in both the front and back courts as the No. 14 Mountaineers look to stay in first place in the Big 12 with a home win over No. 15 Baylor.

Williams, above, speaks to the effort and execution it will require to at least offset BU's interior ability in the 6-8, 265-pound Rico Gathers (13 ppg, 10.4 rpg) and the 6-8 Taurean Prince (15.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg). The forward also details the ability to rebound against the Bears' defensive zone look, and what the Mountaineers have learned from their losses in each of the last four series games, including a three-game sweep last season. Williams also dissects some of the line-up and team make-up differences from this year to last, and gives his expectations for both the team and crowd as WVU plays host in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday night.

Next, Miles delves into what he could take from the film review of last season's games, particularly the one played in the Big 12 Tournament, and how the poise of the team is a key. Miles also talks ball movement, how WVU selects where to attack the zone, and wearing down the larger Bears. The guard also notes the recent bench play, and what players have brought energy in the absence of Jonathan Holton.
