RE: Noreen, Staten to Tour Estonia
Aaric Murray, Deniz Kilicli, Kevin Noreen, and Dominique Rutledge are the bigs. Keaton Miles and Aaron Brown at SF...

Murray has the potential to be one of the best big men in WVU history. He and Kilicli will make a powerful pair down low...

Noreen is probably WVU's best passing big. He sees the floor really well, and always shoots a high percentage...

Rutledge could be very good. He showed flashes last year. If he plays the way he's capable of playing, WVU should have 4 bigs to rotate at C and PF...

Miles showed some nice offense, to go along with his stellar defense, during summer league play, which will be a welcome change for the Mountaineers. WVU needs some production from the SF position...

Both guard positions are pretty well stocked too. This is the first time since Huggs came to Morgantown that he's got a full bench. I'm looking forward to seeing how WVU does this season...

Bitcruncher:

Historically, Bob has put his best teams on the floor when he's got a guard who can score and a guard who can handle and distribute the ball--this team is guard-heavy.. who would you rate as reliable shooters, and who do you believe will run point?

I'm excited about this team--on paper they look very deep!

RE: Noreen, Staten to Tour Estonia
That's a good question...

It depends on how the players do in practice. Right now, Hinds is the starting PG, with Gary Browne as his backup. But Dayton transfer Juwan Staten could take over that spot. He's good at distributing the ball, leading the A10 with 190 assists in 2010-11. WVU has 3 good PGs, and I expect Huggs to use all 3, perhaps all at once...

SG is a question mark. There soph. walk on Aric Dickerson, who didn't get much playing time last year. Incoming BC transfer Matt Humphrey shoots around 30%, and has the experience. WVU has 2 incoming freshmen, Eron Harris and Terry Henderson, and both did fairly well in summer league. But they're an unknown quantity until they hit the floor...

IMO Huggs will probably play 2 PGs most of the time, unless someone steps up at SG...
