Kentucky Players Respond To WVU's Daxter Miles Jr.'s Victory Guarantee

Earlier today, West Virginia freshman guard Daxter Miles Jr. raised more than a few eyebrows when he guaranteed that the fifth-seeded Mountaineers would hand Kentucky its first loss of the season tomorrow night.

Miles also flat out stated that the Wildcats don't play hard. Mountaineer point guard Juwan Staten also tossed more fuel on the fire. 

Naturally, the media congregated in Cleveland had to get reactions from 'Cats players to those bold statements. Brett Dawson, of's Kentucky affiliate, spoke with UK sophomore guard Andrew Harrison, who was not amused. 

Meanwhile, Kyle Tucker of The Courier-Journal spoke with Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein, Aaron Harrison and Devin Booker about the comments coming from the Mountaineers.

One thing is for sure: the media session in Cleveland was not a boring one. Let's see if tomorrow night's game between WVU and Kentucky lives up to that standard.
