BGN Video: Huggins previews 2014-15 WVU team

After earning a bid to the NIT a year ago, veteran head coach Bob Huggins is getting ready to start his eighth season as West Virginia's head basketball coach.

The Mountaineers will begin practice Friday and Huggins likes the team he has heading into the season.

Led by senior all-Big 12 Conference point guard Juwan Staten and armed with a roster full of long, athletic players who have the potential to rebound and defend the way Huggins likes to see his teams defend, this West Virginia team is looking to continue improving and make it back to the NCAA tournament after missing out two years in a row for the first time in a decade.

During his first press conference of the 2014-15 season, Huggins talked about the improved athleticism of his team and whether or not his team is more prepared for the tough Big 12 this year.
