Phil Booth

Phil Booth may be one of the most overlooked players on the Wildcats, but his contributions cannot go unnoticed. He is a role player who will be looked to play solid minutes against the WVU basketball team.

In a game with two teams as evenly matched as the Mountaineers and Wildcats, it will take players like Booth (and West Virginia’s James Bolden) to make up the difference. Their roles may prove to be the ultimate game changer.

Booth has made 27 starts this season averaging 10.6 points per game. He is one of six players on the Wildcats to record double figures. He also dishes out 3.1 assists per game.
