Bob Huggins noted that most of his players didn't take advantage of their chances against Miami, and that stalwarts who typically play with good efficiency didn't do so on the disappointing road trip. That, combined with woes that have plagued the Mountaineers all season, led to their second loss of the year.
"We're not playing good team defense," Huggins said for the umpteenth time this young season. "Miami got penetration, and we fouled them, and they made shots. We're not getting to the foul line enough, and we're settling for too many jumpers."
Huggins put his team through long video study sessions in the ongoing attempt to correct those problems, and remains confident that they will be fixed.
"We'll get better," he said. "We just have to keep working on them."
