Just In Time

WVU guard Casey Mitchell struggled through much of the 2009-10 basketball season, but he had a big conribution in West Virginia's Big East championship win over Georgetown.

Coming into Saturday's Big East championship game against Georgetown, Casey Mitchell had been reduced to a role player at best for the Mountaineer basketball team. That was a big adjustment for a player used to being the star of the team, and he fought to find his niche and adapt. Against the Hoyas, however, on the largest of college tournament stages, Mitchell came through. Although playing just under five minutes, the junior college transfer hit a big three-pointer and added a pair of pressure free throws to help WVU defeat the Hoyas 60-58 for their first Big East title.

In this exclusive interview, Mitchell discusses adapting to the role and performing under pressure for a Mountaineer team that was looking for support for star Da'Sean Butler down the stretch in big games.
