Huggins' Prelim Thoughts On Weekend Premiere

West Virginia's Bob Huggins, already in elite company when it comes to all-time wins, is threatening to move into the top 16 winningest coaches all time with games against Monmouth and Lafayette this weekend. Here, Huggins previews the first foe, and delves into the preseason developments for a squad high on talent but low on experience.

Huggins, entering his eighth season at West Virginia, finally has a team more suited to his traditional approach of defense and rebounding as staples. Here, the 17th all-time winningest coach, who needs a victory Friday to tie Temple's John Chaney at 741, speaks to the expectations of his younger players, his thoughts on a Monmouth team which has built to this season, and the Mountaineers' pressing, trapping style that should create additional possessions - as long as easy opposition points aren't created in the process.
