Bob Huggins Reviews West Virginia's win over Marshall in Charleston

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Marshall hit knock down jumpers and ran with the Mountaineers through the first half. But extra effort and fewer turnovers resulted in a second half blowout for the Mountaineers.

Marshall held pace for as long as they could, but West Virginia's size in the paint out muscled anything the Herd could muster. Although the Mountaineers didn't shoot the ball extradinarily well (30-65 or 46.2%) it was Marshall's shooting woes that were the story. The Herd didn't hit a single shot from the behind the arc in the second half going 0-13. They also gave the rock up 11 additional times to help seal a West Virginia win. Here, coach Bob Huggins touched on the team's first half struggles, but also how they pulled away to close the game.
