That’s the story according to Juwan Staten, he of Wednesday night’s last-second 3-point attempt that was blocked by a 6-foot-2 opponent, he of the two-plus years without a 3-point basket.
And that’s the story of WVU’s season to date, one that now has six losses by five or fewer points and as many losses when leading by nine or more points.
“We got caught in a hole,” Noreen said. “They switched it. I set a high screen probably a couple steps inside halfcourt and they covered it. Some said (Staten) should have gone to the basket. Some said I should have re-screened so they’d switch back and maybe I could pop open for a 3, but we didn’t do either and we got stuck with a bad shot.”
