West Virginia Fell From the Ranks of the Unbeaten and Will Look to Bounce Back Against Louisiana-Monroe

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Head coach Bob Huggins was critical of his team's second half effort against No. 10 Virginia and talked about the loss waking the Mountaineers up as they head into a matchup with ULM.

In the video above, Bob Huggins talks about what went wrong in the second half against No. 10 Virginia. West Virginia built a lead as large as 12 in the first half, but poor shooting and a lack of composure ruined the Mountaineers' chances of notching a top-10 win. Huggins said his team gave up far too many layups against Virginia, allowing players like Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill to get to the rim whenever they wanted, which made it hard on the Mountaineers to keep up. The coach also focused on what his team will have to do against Louisiana-Monroe Sunday afternoon to make sure the result is different this time out.

Forward Devin Williams had his struggles against the Cavaliers Tuesday. The Mountaineers' leading scorer was in foul trouble early, and did actually foul out in the latter stages of the game. In the video above, Williams talks about a need for consistent effort across the board for the Mountaineers, and the importance of attacking each game with a team-first mentality.

Forward Jonathan Holton is always a source of energy for Wet Virginia, but he said his team suffered from a lack of that in the second half against Virginia at Madison Square Garden. In the video above, he talks about how hard it was to watch the film of the UVA game, and how important the press is to WVU winning games.
