Ahead of the Curve

Freshman swingman Da'Sean Butler is taking on double duty at both the three and the four positions in West Virginia's intricate offensive system.

According to head coach John Beilein, most freshmen struggle with simply learning how to play the college game, let alone master his system. And although Butler certainly makes some mistakes, he has shown an amazing aptitude for picking up the offense to date. What's more, he's learning two positions, which gives Beilein more flexibility in the lineups he puts on the court.

Butler, who certainly doesn't lack confidence, is also adamant about stamping this Mountaineer team with its own identity. Hear what he has to say on these topics, as well as his thoughts on playing the 1-3-1 and more, in this interview from BlueGoldNews.com.
