It was frustrating, it was ugly, it was fraught with as many opportunities to win as there were flushed away down the stretch. But with six of the last seven games against ranked teams, No. 21 West Virginia did what it had to in defeating Kansas State 76-72 on Wednesday. Here, head coach Bob Huggins details the win, which moved the Mountaineers within a game of 20.
Huggins who gained his 759th career win to move into a tie for 12th-best all-time at the Division I level, speaks to the inability to take advantage to multiple chances to seal the contest far earlier, the lack of scoring around the rim, issues with the pressure and WVU's use of two bigs for considerable portions of the game.
