After reading KU's statement which openly stated that the University of Kansas was a victim in this, I looked into what was said to have occurred. There is no evidence that any coach from Kansas was involved. The player in question (Sousa?, I believe) had accepted money to go elsewhere but wanted to change his mind and go to Kansas. The moneys from the mentioned Addidas Reps/Agents was to pay back the bribes for going to the original school. They haven't released anything implicating anybody from Kansas other than the player.

Uhhh, I think the graphic refers to the fact he is the only player ever to hit those marks - not his totals.

That point seems lost on a bunch of us. The absolute worst match-ups left for us were:

Villanova
Michigan (the way they shot the other night - not the way they were shooting)
Kansas

I feel like we would've advanced with any other match-up.

All in all...it was a very good year. There's at least 100 div I basketball programs that would gladly swap their teams/seasons with us.

We had a great year and I too am going to miss Dax and Jevon. I would love to see Routt develop and give us the ability to run a big lineup out there when we need to. Sags is small, his frame is better suited for power forward rather than center. Ever seen Routt and Sags standing side by side? Routt looks 5 inches taller (I believe the program says 2).

It's still a great day to be a Mountaineer.

I think I figured something out tonight. We feel like WVU gets screwed in the Big 12 with officiating...our reputation precedes us and the refs watch extra close due to "what they know" about us. In the NCAA tourney, we saw decent officiating in first halves but then the fouls came out in each second half.

I think it is the same as the Big 12 effect...the refs talk about how the first half went, agree that we are way too physical despite playing within ground rules set by the NCAA. They decide to tighten up some (or someone gets in their ears enough) and suddenly it's whistle city. We don't do well with insecure refs who are looking to demonstrate how closely they are watching.

Some of you on here are a trip about Huggs and Allen and a bunch of stuff. How many of you same guys were melting down when we lost all of those "dis-satisfied players that Huggs ran off"? When we finally began to glimpse what was really going on, I don't think anyone could challenge the way Huggs handled things in letting those "cancers" go. Same thing here, not a single one of you knows anything about the dynamics between Huggs, Allen, Ahmad, Harris, West and the team...yet everyone is an expert with what he would've done.

Our half court offense sucked this year...and it cost us. Repeatedly.

Which of you experts really knows if we wasted talent or if Huggs literally got blood from a turnip by making this team as good as it was. If you can read, the article about the books Huggs has written and his acknowledged expertise on offenses should give you a hint which way we shook out. I figure (see, I'm just like everyone else in here), that Huggs did an excellent job getting the results he did from what he had to work with - we had no pure scorers - NOOOO, Teddy Allen isn't that guy - maybe one day. He wasn't nearly as good as some of you imagine him to be.

My take is that Huggs REALLY knows his stuff and the exposure and rep we are getting from these Sweet 16's and "press Virginia" is beginning to bring some very talented players in. It may be sooner rather than later when we're back in the Final Four. We just need some pure scorers that can and will play defense.

Starters need to be out now. Get rest. No injuries. This game is over.

Just my take on some things I noticed. Konate and Ahmad don't or haven't learned what to do as the ball comes in to the hoop. Your big man has to drift to open territory for a dish or he needs to begin bulldozing to get into rebounding position. It is difficult because a players natural tendency is to watch what happens with the drive. Our guys, especially Konate - and Ahmad some - stand and watch. Dishes to them are knocked away and we rarely are in position to get a follow-up.

We aren't bad...they are good. They shot "lights out" in the second half.

That was the basic problem when Carter tried to dish inside.

You always hate to lose a player with that much playing time who still has years left to grow. As last football season began, I couldn't believe what I was seeing in the VT game. It was bad. He was 10 yards downfield...driven back, and then pancaked. They pulled him out after a couple series but he was never the same. He got better throughout last season but was never anywhere near dominant. I had hopes for him though. I hope he does well with discuss.

Those last 2 buckets were huge - this team has been missing that. Somebody to step up and score at key points.

Neither team has scored for the last 4:15.

That's insane!

Who are these guys in the dark uniforms? I thought it was us but these guys are hitting shots and moving the ball around in the half-court offense better.

Up by 10 at halftime...

I also think we learned a little about not having enough length to run the 1-3-1. Dax was consistently too slow to rotate over and Knox kept burying wide open 3's from his side of the court. They later hit one or two from the other side but mainly it was attacking Dax's side. He's short and doesn't have enough length to cover that much ground and get an arm up into the eyes of the shooter.

Are we still sitting on a 5 seed for the NCAA Tourney? Does Kentucky now have a signature win to get into the Tourney? Are we still a work in progress? Is Kentucky?

I think Bob and John got pretty much what they wanted from last night. Bob would've liked the win but he's not devastated that his good friend got a much needed big win to get his team on track. Bob called off the press for the entire second half to give them a legitimate chance to climb back and for us to work on our half court offense - we've got to get better at that to win tourney games.

I think we are still over-reacting a little. My take is that Huggins isn't in love with being ranked too high too early. Traditionally, he has used the season to teach and to grow and to get them where he wants them come tournament time. He and Calipari are good friends and Kentucky needed this win A LOT worse than us. Huggins didn't intentionally lose the game by any stretch...but he did call off the dogs and basically abandoned our press in the second half. Why?

Cutting a friend a break and giving him the opportunity to climb back into the game - not letting them - just giving them a decent shot.

Well, they did it. Now, Calipari got the win he badly needed and our team has learned even more about protecting a lead against teams that have talent. Not a horrible end result eventhough we fans are thinking the sky is falling.

I really think Bob Huggins puts only so much stock in season record and looks more at what his team is doing day in/day out and coaches/teaches from there. If Teddy Allen did run his mouth to coaches then I think Huggins handled it completely right. Sit him down some, bring him back slowly and deflect all of the "inquiring minds" questions.

Our half court offense is dreadful...and it only gets worse as we go deep on the bench. Anybody notice Routt take a 10 second break (uncovered) in the corner and never moved to the bucket until Carter screamed at him mid-dribble?

That summarizes our problems in the half court offense. All standing, no motion. It's like they don't know where to go when.

This is disgusting. We are in a horrible stretch...we're motionless and lethargic...and they are showboating. I'm not there and I want to punch TCU guys in the face.

Paybacks are a bitch. Hopefully.

This^
Jevon may force too many shots but I see him moving without the ball MUCH more than ANYONE else. Too much standing. And that means when Jevon is out front with the ball (often) there are 4 statues in front of him.

Phil's zen is an artform. I think Huggs is "old school" in this regard (for better or worse) in that he gives them enough rope to hang themselves and let's them learn from their screw-ups sometimes. This is like 4 seasons in a row we've got on a roll and then crashed and burned mid-season. Let's hope he can bring them back to where he wants them as in seasons past.

I agree with both of those points wvudee. Huggs does too but he put it down to toughness. He said we'd rather shoot over people than to take it inside at them. I think our guys are plenty tough but he's making a point about what he wants more of. I/he also agrees about the fouling although we do more complaining about the refs and he comes at them about "stupid" fouls. Carter's hand on the Kansas shooters back jumps to mind. The hand did nothing, it shouldn't have been called but it was...remove the hand on future shots.
