"That can happen," Harris said. "The mind can do a lot of things. His mind told him his shot was going in every single time. They rattled in. They swished in. It didn't matter. They all went in."
Harris battled his mind during a shooting slump he's since shaken, but he had one stretch that saw him make just 3 of 11 3-point attempts in an overtime road win against Texas Tech before shooting 3-for-11 overall in back-to-back losses against Oklahoma State and Texas Tech when he missed 12 of 13 3-point shots.
Harris never stopped shooting, though. He's taken at least 10 shots in all but three games and averages a team-high 13 shots per game.
"I get down on myself and it's something I always work on," Harris said. "I've been trying to work on that by still shooting. I just want to shoot it. If I'm open, my role is to shoot it, so I'm going to try to shoot with confidence, even if I'm down on myself. That's me working on keeping myself up."
Henderson's eight shots against the Wildcats were the fewest since the Dec. 14 game against Marshall, which was his second game in the starting lineup. He only scored fewer than 10 points once in his first eight starts - and WVU lost that game to Purdue.
"Eron's a guy who it doesn't seem like it bothers him as much as it does other people," Huggins said. "I think missing shots bothers Terry more than it bothers Eron. There are a lot of guys who can score and have that mentality where they figure if they miss this one, they'll make the next one.
"I think Eron is that way. Some guys have a little more conscience for it. Maybe that's not the right word, but that's kind of what it is. Some guys worry about missing shots and other guys think they'll make the next one."
Henderson did have one rough patch to challenge him early Monday. He was having a hard time guarding Hannahs and a harder time dribbling the ball through the defense to the basket. He didn't relent.
"Eron's a great player and he's going to stay in attack mode," Henderson said. "That's something I'm learning from him these two seasons."
By the end of the game, Henderson was scoring on left-handed layups, dunking in offensive rebounds while being fouled and sinking 3-pointers to keep a distance between Hannahs and the Red Raiders.
"Having a game like that?" Harris said. "Your confidence is on 100 when you have a game like that."
