Daxter Miles and Jevon Carter are two of the most mentally tough players in the Big 12. The WVU basketball seniors are ready for a special night that is sure to be emotional.
Both Carter and Miles have been mainstays in the WVU basketball rotation since they were freshman four years ago. The time has really flown by because these two have known nothing but success in their time with the Mountaineers.
Carter and Miles were a part of four runs to the NCAA Tournament, including this upcoming one which has a chance to go all the way to San Antonio for the Final Four. Since they came to Morgantown they have probably heard about the 2010 Final Four team and Carter and Miles have been working so hard to make sure the WVU basketball team has the opportunity to get there again.
Before getting there, though, these two will be honored in front of a packed house at the WVU Coliseum. Senior Night is special for any class and fans of the WVU basketball team have been so lucky to have the chance to usher off some very special players in recent years.

Carter and Miles are special because they go together so well. As guards, they both play a unique role and a similar one. They’re on the court to make their teammates better but they also do what is best for the team whenever the ball is in their hands.
Both Carter and Miles have been criticized at times over their career for taking ill-advised shots and making questionable plays. But what goes overlooked is their little contributions that have allowed the WVU basketball team to win more than 100 games.
This truly is the golden age of WVU basketball and Carter and Miles are as much to thank for that as that 2010 Final Four team which included legends like Da’Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks and Joe Mazzulla.
It may take another Final Four appearance to appease the most critical fans, but Carter and Miles have the determination to make that happen.
