Mountaineer players took one of Huggins' chief messages to heart in the win over the Keydets. The coach has often said a team doesn't have to shoot well to score, and guard Juwan Staten said the team used its defense to kick-start its offense.
For his part, Miles said his comfort this season is the result of experience. As a freshman, he simply wasn't asked to pull the trigger too often as a shooter. Now, he is more comfortable looking for his own offense.
On a scale of 1 to 10, Aaric Murray said his quality of play is at about a "6" as things currently stand. It will take time to get comfortable with the team's motion offense -- and to get over the jitters he still feels early in the season.
