The Washington Post Sunday - - Sports -

The se­nior guard scored 28 points as the Moun­taineers scored a 65-59 win over reel­ing Ge­orge­town at Ver­i­zon Cen­ter. Mitchell, the 2009 ju­nior col­lege player of the year, av­er­aged only 3.7 points per game last sea­son but is up to 17.6 this sea­son for West Vir­ginia. “Casey, I thought, was re­ally as­sertive early in the year and played re­ally, re­ally hard,” Coach Bob Hug­gins said af­ter the game, “and then had a stretch where he didn’t play very hard. It’s hard to get shots when you aren’t play­ing very hard.”
