MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - By his own admission, Kirk Hairston has had a tough time getting enthusiastic about playing basketball for a good portion of the season. Even though he was a contributing factor on Martinsburg's team that went to the state tournament last year, Hairston found the interest lacking this year. "I wasn't really into playing. ... I felt burnt out," said Hairston. "I just really wasn't stepping up. " Until lately.
