Newsflash: It’s not good this season and it really hasn’t been good for two seasons now.
Opponents are shooting better percentages and scoring more points since the start of last season than they had before against a Bob Huggins WVU team, but this team is something else.
Gives up straight-line drives. Doesn’t guard in transition. Leaves shooters to help on drives or in the post. Leaves the post to vacate spaces for drives. Switches screens so badly that Huggins has to call off the scheme.
“I think we’re kind of backwards,” Staten said. “When it’s a guy who can’t really shoot, we’re kind of hugging him. When we have a guy who can shoot, his guy is the one who is giving the most help.”
