West Virginia’s Bob Huggins enters his 40th season as a head coach with 900 career wins and a new two-year contract extension.

This season figures to be a challenge after five of the Mountaineers’ top eight scorers departed and it takes time for seven newcomers to adjust to Huggins’ system.

While acknowledging he has multiple players capable of scoring, Huggins doesn’t want to rely on offensive shootouts in a defensive-focused league. He would like to get back to playing solid defense. West Virginia’s 72 points allowed per game last season ranked eighth in the Big 12.

“There’s a lot of unknowns,” Huggins said. “I think it’s probably fair to say that they could possibly make up for bad defense because they can shoot the ball.”

Part of the scoring load will fall on guards Taz Sherman and Sean McNeil, who return after going through the NBA draft process

Despite the addition of three graduate transfers, Huggins said there is a big learning curve.

“The way we play is a whole lot different than what most people play,” Huggins said. “And the intensity we play with and how hard we play is different. We’re not going to stand in a 2-3 zone. It’s going to be a learning experience for all of them.”

West Virginia tied with Texas for third place in the Big 12 last season and reached the NCAA Tournament for the 10th time under Huggins. The Mountaineers lost to Syracuse in the second round to finish 19-10.
