West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins chastised his team for not showing up to play in the early stages. West Virginia struggled to get any offense going in the first ten minutes of the game, and actually found itself in a 23-15 hole at the midway point of the first half. Huggins said the team had "a bad practice" before this game, which has been rare for this group so far this year. One player who Huggins refrained from criticizing was junior forward Devin Wiliams, who he said has been putting in a bunch of extra work to make his game more well rounded. Huggins also offered praise for freshman forward Esa Ahmad, who had his highest scoring outing of the young season with 11 points. Huggins has continually touted Ahmad's understanding of the game, saying he has a willingness to learn that is rare among players his age.
