BGN Video: WVU ready for exhibition

The West Virginia men's basketball team will tip off the 2014-15 season Sunday in an exhibition against Shepherd.

Thursday, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins and a few players looked at the preparations the Mountaineers have been making heading into this season. Despite losing three of its top scorers from a year ago, WVU feels that it has a deep bench to go to this season.

Because of that, Huggins said he's prepared to with a lot of different combinations of players on the court - both in Sunday's exhibition and throughout the course of the regular season - based on what the other teams are giving them.

Senior point guard Juwan Staten talked about what West Virginia has been able to do to get ready for the season, while sophomore Nathan Adrian and Jevon Carter discussed trying to break into the starting lineup and where they have gotten better.
