"You have to," head coach Bob Huggins said. Sure, Forte has missed the last 11 games with a hyperextended elbow, but simply assuming the skilled guard won't play is a mistake. The Cowboys (9-5, 1-1 Big 12) have been surprisingly solid in the backcourt without him, and have shown the ability to shoot well from outside at 33.6 percent, including 42.3 percent from both Jawun Events and Joe Burton. Add in the balanced scoring ability and the interior size in 7-0 center Anthony Allen and forwards Leyton Hammonds (6-7) and Jeffery Carroll (6-6), and the Mountaineers figure to again be tested as they have in their first two league contests. Huggins, above, also delves into the challenges of being able to guard against not only OSU's shooting, but also its ability to put the ball on the floor and pressure the rim.
