West Virginia Faces Texas Tech Looking To Lock Up A Tie For Second In The Big 12

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The emotions will run high for Jaysean Paige and Jonathan Holton during West Virginia's Senior Day against Texas Tech on Wednesday. Here, the two speak to their experiences at WVU, and what playing at the major college level, and for Bob Huggins, means to them.

It's a bit of a contrived interview each season, as the upperclassmen are quizzed on their overall career thoughts and asked to surmise their time with the Mountaineer program in a few statements. But those sessions often give glimpses into the player struggles, the peaks and valleys of any career, be it two seasons with Paige, three with Holton of the full four with fellow senior Richard Romeo, with whom BlueGoldNews.com will have a separate story forthcoming. Paige, above, is in line for the Big 12's Sixth Man of the Year award, and should compete for national honors as well. The guard speaks to his time at West Virginia, his decision to play for Huggins and what he hopes to take from what's developed into a brilliant final season, as well as his expectations for Senior Day.

In an insightful interview, Holton, below, talks about growing up in a family of a dozen siblings, and what that meant in developing his early competitiveness. The forward also delves into the redemption Wednesday will being after the Miami native was unable to play in front of his parents in the contest at Florida because of a suspension. Holton also gives a heartfelt take on his overall experiences as both a student and player at West Virginia, and how Huggins and the entire basketball staff has impacted his life.
