And so it goes here tonight as the Mountaineers meet the Longhorns in the Erwin Center. Texas is 8-5 with a shaky offense and the youngest team in the country. WVU is 7-6 with a shakier offense and a bevvy of first-year players.
No wonder the coaches sound so much alike.
Both teams have had problems with shooting and scoring. Both teams have the same problem with their rosters.
“You never know who is going to play, you never know who is going to show up,” WVU Coach Bob Huggins said.
The words from his counterpart, Rick Barnes, are about the same entering tonight’s game at the Frank Erwin Center. The 9 p.m. game will be televised by ESPN2 and feature a Texas team that’s the youngest in college basketball.
“Like Bobby,” Barnes said, “I don’t know what to expect.”
