LSU Preview: Bob Huggins Breakdown

LSU rolls into Morgantown off a 82-60 win at UMass that wasn't that close. The Tigers, in among their more surprisingly dominant games of the season, took apart the Minutemen defense, getting 25 points from guard Josh Gray. Here, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins dissects the Tigers' offense, and discusses the Mountaineers' depth and pressure, and how imperative it will be on Thursday.

Huggins, who just passed legendary Kansas head coach Phog Allen for 14th place on the all time wins list with 747, notes LSU's interior size, the Tigers' ability to match-up on the perimeter, and the idea that, perhaps more than any major conference game this season, WVU will have a clear depth advantage, as the Tigers (5-2) have five players averaging more than 30 minutes per game - and more than 10 points as well. Huggins also speaks to West Virginia's shooting, gives thoughts on the LSU contest against UMass and notes how he believes the student crowd will have to carry the Coliseum environment, as, sadly, many general public tickets remain for a 16th-rated team versus a name opponent.
