This team is a mystery. At times they look like they can beat anyone and then then at other times they look like they can’t beat anyone.
The only think I know is that after Haley’s shot it looked a very different WVU team than the one that played the 19.59 minutes.
The best players do not let their offense affect their defense.
The mystery is why they keep throwing passes with little or no chance of success.
They lack of outside shooting contributes since the other team knows WVU will try to go inside,February 16, 2020 at 7:18 pm in reply to: Taz Sherman Provides Hope For WVU Shooting Woes In Baylor Loss #111737
I guess the question is, since he had not shot well all season, is was this a sign of things to come or an aberration?February 16, 2020 at 7:13 pm in reply to: WVU Rifle Drops First Regular Season Match In Five Years #111736
Winning streaks always end sometime. Looks to me like they kept it close.February 11, 2020 at 8:11 pm in reply to: WVU Needs Productive Matthews To Navigate Stretch Run #111224
Some players are just a mystery They have all the tools to be great but something keeps them from achieving greatness. Maybe he thinks too much instead of reacting. Hard to know.February 9, 2020 at 6:27 pm in reply to: Point Blank Shots Result In Zeroes For WVU In Oklahoma Loss #111097
Jekyll & Hyde type team. Can be very good and then very bad. Even when shooting is off, and even great shooters get in slumps, defense should be consistent (see Virginia the past few seasons). This WVU failed on defense as well as offense. As Doolittle said, no one was guarding him. I never played at their level of competition but I guarantee that if I was on a division 1 court at 19 and no one guarded me I would put up a lot points.February 6, 2020 at 11:03 am in reply to: Shots From The Field Fall From All Angles As WVU Dusts Off Iowa State #110781
Great comment by HarlerFebruary 2, 2020 at 3:44 pm in reply to: Big Points At Key Moments For Hard-Working Chase Harler #110442
Players like Harler are as important to a winning team as the stars. You need players who will the things that make a difference, such as hitting a big shot, taking a charge, getting a big rebound getting a big steal. I agree with him that he will not be player the other team concentrates on stopping.
And when the defense does not play well games like K State happen.January 25, 2020 at 7:23 pm in reply to: For Huggins, Moving Up The All-Time Wins List Not A Big Deal #109778
You do not win that many games without being good. It was easy to see the loving side of Huggs when he comforted Butler after his inhjury in the final fourJanuary 22, 2020 at 12:56 pm in reply to: ‘Fake Starter’? Fighting Words To WVU’s Jordan McCabe #109438
Start with the obvious, the team is 15-3 so no player is dragging the team down.
McCabe, as a leader, adds things that go beyond the stats. He has the talent to improve the stats.
Certainly there are valid criticisms of his play but it is clear he works hard and adds to the team.
They played a total team game last night. Easier to win when you do that. Tshiebwe’s play was cap on the night.
Not sure anyone knows why a team comes out flat in game but that seems to be a constant this season with many teams. Just hope they are more ready Monday against Texas.
I take the DC to NYC part of that trip regularly. Thanks sharing the parts of the trip I have not taken.
Nice to see them dominate a game pretty much from start to finish.
Phog is a tough play for a visiting team win out. Still, WVU free throw shooting is mystery. I never played at their level so I’m sure the pressure is different but I could drain free throws. Shooting them is basically form and repetition
The team started getting better last season after dumping Ahmad and Harris but they lacked depth. The most promising thing from the Ohio State game was they beat a good team with so little production for the starting 5. That takes adjustment, which comes from coaching and players responding to the coaching.
Looks like Tech and WVU have the top newcomers.
