WVU's Huggins: TCU Now Has Players

TCU struggled mightily in its first two Big 12 seasons. But now, the unbeaten Horned Frogs have far better talent and depth than at any time in recent history, and head coach Trent Johnson is getting the desired results. Here, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins details the progression, and what the Mountaineers can do the counter TCU's exceptional defensive effort thus far.

Texas Christian, 13-0 on the season with wins over Ole Miss and Mississippi State, among others, is getting exceptionally balanced scoring across about seven players. It's also limiting foes to just 34 percent shooting from the field in winning by an average margin of 22 points. The Frogs are also plus-11 in rebounds and rank 25th in field goal percentage at 48.5 percent themselves - compared to WVU's 42.9 percent - and 24th in rebounds and 25th in assists per game. That written, the schedule difficulty increases exponentially, starting with No. 17 West Virginia, and a pressing style TCU has not encountered this season. Huggins speaks to some of the above, along with thoughts on getting a young team to understand the rigors of the Big 12 and maintaining their health and freshness as well as possible over the 18-game span.
