Radford vs. West Virginia preview: Mountaineers host Highlanders

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Mountaineers face the Radford Highlanders in the second of four straight home games for West Virginia.

The West Virginia Mountaineers hope to remain unbeaten at home when they host the Radford Highlanders on Saturday afternoon. The Mountaineers are 3-0 this season in Morgantown, but just 2-5 in away contests. Radford is 5-6 so far, but has lost its last three.

Radford's second-year head coach is former West Virginia assistant Mike Jones. The Highlanders are already close to eclipsing last year's win total of six.

2012 has been somewhat disappointing so far for WVU, but the Mountaineers still have time to improve their record and their chances at an NCAA tournament birth. Sophomore guard Juwan Staten leads the team in scoring (10.8 PPG). Offense has been a problem for the Mountaineers this season. As a team, they have shot 40.1 percent from the field, which ranks worst in the Big 12.

Radford's best player has been Javonte Green. The sophomore guard leads the Highlanders in scoring (13.8 PPG), rebounding (7.2 RPG), and field goal percentage (55.1%).
