WVU’s Huggins Sees Talent, Needs Refinement as Preseason Continues
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins left the coaching to his assistants, but in the postgame had several thoughts as to the progress of his team through 15 practices of the 2018-19 preseason.
“We’re talented. I’m not worried about that,” the veteran coach said. “We have to learn where to throw the ball and who to look for. It’s kind of like a quarterback who can throw it. If he doesn’t look at the right guy then he might not be open by the time he does.”
In a split-squad scrimmage, the Gold team topped the Blue 64-58. Wes Harris had 16 points and Sagaba Konate 15 for the winners, while Lamont West (16) and Logan Routt (10) paced the Blue. Esa Ahmad had nine reobunds for the Gold while Jermaine Haley snared five for the Blue.
