Daxter Miles Jr. loses the ball trying to score in a practice.
LEXINGTON, Ky. — What were you thinking? You do not wake the proverbial beast, if it is in fact sleeping. But that is exactly what West Virginia's guard Daxter Miles Jr. did yesterday afternoon when he took his best verbal shot at undefeated No. 1 Kentucky (36-0).
"To me, they [Kentucky] don't play hard," Miles said. "To me, they don't play as hard as we play. Nobody is invincible. Their time is going to come. We're going to pull it out tomorrow."
No. 5 West Virginia takes on the Wildcats tonight in the Sweet 16.
"I give them them their props. Salute them to getting to 36-0. But tomorrow they're gonna be 36-1. They're gonna be 36-1!"
Ladies and gentlemen, here's a picture of an idiot in action. UK is looking for an undefeated season on their way to a National Championship. They really didn't need any extra incentive, but the 'Cats got it just the same.
"Now I'm kind of juiced," said Kentucky's big man Willie Cauley-Stein. "This game is going to be really fun. They made it personal now. It's going to be one of those games. If you want to watch a good game you're going to want to watch this game. Dudes are lit. Dudes are ready to play."
Cauley-Stein also addressed West Virginia's full-court pressure defense. "By pressing us, you're going to bring out the best in us," Cauley-Stein said. "By letting us relax and kind of do things. We have so many competitive dudes, if you got guys coming at us, we're not going to just let you come at us."
In his defense, Miles Jr. is only a freshman. Good luck, son. You're going to need it. And just for chuckles the picture of Daxter shows him losing the ball, while trying to score unabated during a mere practice.
