Kevin updates us on Marshon Brooks' injury, talks about the importance of this game for both teams, breaks down the Mountaineers' tough defense, and assesses the cost to West Virginia of losing the injured Rhode Island native Joe Mazzulla.
Here's what Kevin said about the magnitude of losing Mazzulla:
"It's huge. His replacement is a good prospect, but he's a freshman: Darryl Bryant. And you don't win with freshman point guards in the Big East for very long. That's a position that Providence really needs to take advantage of [Saturday] with obviously Sharaud Curry matched up against Bryant. West Virginia has offensive problems because they don't run their offense smoothly enough, and obviously that's a direct reflection of point guard issues. Joe Mazzulla I think would have certainly made West Virginia an NCAA Tournament team. They still may get there, but it's going to be hard work the rest of the way."
