MBB Struggles this season...
I've been following as many games as possible via cable. Some stuff I'm noticing:

Poor shooting from the perimeter--this is killing offensive flow, 48/169 3-pointers made (this is weak). You also need more production from Henderson and Brown...
Defensive breakdowns--not so much with intensity as with fouls (this can be coached around, but this is a young team)
Weak inside game--what happened to Deniz Kilicli? He was a monster last year--has Murray supplanted him completely? Are they ever both on the floor at the same time?

Any input is welcome..

This WVU team is still trying to find an identity, and it doesn't help that Kilicli is stuck in the worst slump of his career. But if Murray plays the way he did in the last game for the rest of the season, WVU will be fine in the middle. The best shooters on the team are the 2 freshmen guards. Although SF Keaton Miles has stepped up his game this year...

I just wish some guys on the team were more aggressive. Kilicli is the only aggressive player on the team right now, and his aggression only gets him into trouble. We need some of that from the rest of the team, without all the fouls...

I think Huggs might have found a starting lineup last night. At the end of the Radford game, Huggs had Juwann Staten, Gary Browne, Aaric Murray, Dom Rutledge and Keaton Miles on the floor. That lineup pressed, created turnovers, and held Radford scoreless for over 4 minutes in the critical run at the end...

We shall see if I'm right when the next game rolls around...
