West Virginia Ripped Northern Kentucky to Open the 2015-16 Season.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia forced 30 turnovers in cruising to a 107-61 win over Northern Kentucky in the season-opener. But while the display was dominant, head coach Bob Huggins still found some areas lacking.

Huggins, above, reviews WVU's overall play, including critiques of the halfcourt offense, the sporadic, yet energetic play of Jonathan Holton and his thoughts on several positives and negatives in the contest. As expected, the coach noted West Virginia's explosive start, with highlight-reel dunks, multiple steals in Northern Kentucky's end and a 30-point lead by the break. But a sluggish second half - somewhat expected - left someething to be desired, especially over the first 15 minutes when the teams played nearly evenly on the scoreboard. Huggins also again addressed the play of Esa Ahmad and what Devin Williams brings to the team as a leader and anchor on the inside.
