Although it can't be accurately stated that any of West Virginia's players played particularly well on Saturday night, there still has to be a player of the game.
Da'Sean Butler -- like everyone else in white -- struggled from the field on Saturday, finishing just 2-9. Butler did have a game-high three steals. He also collected nine rebounds and finished with seven points while playing virtually the entire game (39:33).
Despite holding the Wildcats to just 16 first-half points, West Virginia only led by 10 at the break.
If you are looking for a silver lining, it's this: many of his missed shots were open. If Ruoff continues to get open shots, he will eventually start knocking them down.
WVU only managed four field goal attempts over the final seven minutes, making none.
