Huggins: “I Feel Terrible Because I Promised I Would Fix It”

Morgantown, West Virginia – Following West Virginia 76-62 loss against the #3 ranked Kansas Jayhawks, Bob Huggins was again frustrated with his team’s effort and performance. Here’s what the legendary head coach had to say following the game:

“We can’t make a shot. We got out-rebounded. We got 10 assists which means we don’t share the ball very well. We’ve run anything imaginable to score, which is my fault. If we can’t run one offense efficiently, we’re not going to be able to run three of them. We’re standing around. We’re not doing what we’re supposed to be doing on offense. My fault.

I’m frustrated. We’re depending on people we shouldn’t be depending on. I feel terrible because last year I promised I would fix it. Don’t give up on us yet, folks, we have Baylor coming in and we can beat them and then go on a run.

Have you ever seen a team miss more one-footers? I’ve never coached guys like that. I’ve always recruited tough, competitive guys, and I think we have some, but we’re going to have to figure out where to play those guys and then play the other guys out of necessity.

I want so badly for us to be more than nationally relevant again because the people of West Virginia deserve it. We have one of the best and most competitive fan bases in the country.”
