Baylor’s Rico Gathers dunks over Jonathan Holton during a initial half Saturday.

 

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — It was Baylor day during a WVU Coliseum and time for another top-25 matchup, a common occurrence in a Big 12 this deteriorate when some-more than half a teams are ranked.

We were courtside with for a action—and a Rico Gathers Rebound Watch—as No. 15 West Virginia attempted in vain to miscarry from Tuesday night’s annoyance during Oklahoma. Instead, another annoyance ensued.

A summation of a in-game updates:

Baylor wins 87-69 (final)
Gathers finished with 17 points and 16 rebounds and Baylor placed 4 scorers in double total to suffer a runaway. Devin Williams had 20 points and 15 boards, yet they were overshadowed by WVU’s wort home detriment given 2008.

Baylor leads 72-52 (7:16 second half)
With Jaysean Paige and Chase Conner on a floor, Huggins is anticipating to moment Baylor’s zone, yet conjunction ensure is among WVU’s best defenders and Al Freeman waltzed in for an uncontested layup. The Mountaineers are 4-of-18 from 3-point range, that comes on a heels of 5-for-26 in Norman. … Baylor is doubling adult WVU on free-throw attempts, 31-15.

Baylor leads 64-45 (11:48 second half)
Gathers usually grabbed an descent rebound—after twice tipping a round to keep a play alive—and was fouled by Conner, that sent us to a media timeout. The relentless Gathers could be looking during a 20-20 game: He has 15 points and 14 play currently. … Williams has 10 points on 5-of-8 sharpened this half (17 overall), yet it hasn’t helped WVU cut into a lead.

Baylor leads 59-38 (14:46 second half)
The all-important opening 5 mins of a second half went many a same approach as a initial half did—all Baylor. Plus Daxter Miles picked adult his third and fourth fouls. Miles and Williams missed point-blank shots after WVU upheld a round inside, gimmies a Mountaineers can’t means to skip with a necessity like this.

Baylor leads 46-30 (halftime)
Carter’s 13 points leads WVU, while Devin Williams has 7 and Staten four. … Baylor’s Rico Gathers has a halftime double-double with 10 and 10. Royce O’Neal also scored 11 points and haven Taurean Prince has 10.

Baylor leads 46-30 (halftime)
Jevon Carter’s 3-pointer usually 2 seconds before a horn supposing a Mountaineers with a mini-boost in what has been their misfortune half of a season. They shot 34 percent, authorised Baylor to strike 59 percent and route 24-14 in rebounds.

Baylor leads 39-23 (3:39 initial half)
After descending behind by 22, this 16-point hole seems roughly moving for West Virginia, that is built for comebacks with a tempo-pushing press. That’s a china lining, such as it is. Not so china is Baylor’s 21-8 resilient edge, and a fact a Bears’ section is typically rigid. … Carter sank a integrate 3s and dual layups off steals for his 10 points, yet Juwan Staten gave his second tainted preventing a breakaway layup.

Baylor leads 21-3 (11:52 initial half)
Nothing has left right for West Virginia early: 1-of-10 shooting, 0-of-5 3-point shooting, being outrebounded 11-4, handling during a 4-3 turnover deficit. The Bears are 7-of-11 from a building and 4-of-5 from 3 and radically anticipating open players during will.

Baylor leads 13-3 (15:54 initial half)
West Virginia got a discerning basket from Devin Williams yet missed a subsequent 4 shots while a Bears are 5-of-7, including 3-of-3 from 3-point range. Huggins was forced to use a timeout, partial of that he spent barking during a ref for a integrate calls—one negated a WVU take during halfcourt, a other was a no-call as Adrian’s putback was blocked during a rim.

PREGAME NOTES

— West Virginia’s sharpened problems have been deeply chronicled and lamented. Just check out a 3-point percentages for Nate Adrian, Jon Holton, Tarik Phillip and BillyDee Williams. But Huggins contends there’s some-more to missed shots than a shooters: “It’s tough to fire grounders. It’s tough to dip it off a building and fire it. It’s tough to locate it off your shoelaces, We’ve got to pass it better. Everybody wants a round in a sharpened slot and we usually haven’t finished a unequivocally good pursuit of putting a round there.”

— So, about this Rico Gathers cat. At 6-foot-8 and 280 pounds, he’s a bucket and he considers each missed shot his domain. And West Virginia wants to see if he’ll be as imperishable and buoyant after personification during a breakneck pace. “You need to get into his physique and get him tired, unequivocally tired,” pronounced brazen Elijah Macon.

— After blank a Oklahoma diversion with an illness, Devin Williams is behind in a starting lineup, as Macon expected Friday. “He used flattering good (Thursday), and we can tell he feels better.”

    Joe, for someone that doesn’t care, we certain do write a lot. You never saw me post observant that we were good when we won. And all we wrote progressing was fussy we do not need to indicate out anything specific.

    now if we go into a late deteriorate tailspin, a unequivocally initial thing huggins will plea is a miss of loyalty of a group to winning, and entrance in and practicing on their own. “they’d rather play a guitar”.
    Things huggins won’t do….. he won’t censure himself and his coaching staff, he won’t censure a miss of recruiting tip talent, he won’t censure himself for “not observant this coming” we consider we listened that many times final yr..
    we could win 19 games, maybe 20 that should concrete us solidly into a NIT.Most expected a one and done, means “we would rather have played in a ncaa”.
    So it’s all adult to large bob, if he puts onward a time and bid to manager them up, afterwards we could make a large dance, if he usually wants to count all those bucks he’s making, afterwards it’s substantially nit.

    Why is everybody here so astounded to see a skid? It has happened each year given a Final 4 and will continue to occur as prolonged as Bob “Sweatsuit ” Huggins continues to manager this team…

    That is usually how it is and a not going to change until a new AD does a good ole fashioned residence cleaning all a approach from Huggins to Holgorsen.

    Ollie’s Follies contingency die ASAP…It has brought WVU entertainment down to sameness and set us behind 5 years…

    Even a prayers are no longer answered…

    Aaron, we determine one hundred percent. From here on out 2 6 will be an overachievment. We are observant once some-more that we are approach out of a joining in a large 12. Thats not whining; thats usually observant a fact. we would be extraordinary to know if these players get any time to use their shooting. Huggs is ruin focussed on being a super invulnerability (while giving adult 89 points) yet what good does it do if a other group still scores some-more points than we do. A lossis a loss.

    Baylor shot like a basketball group that had open shots. Oh, that’s right they are a tip 20 group that did get open shots.
    Got to get Connor Carter screens on a outward to open things up. Start those 2 if we play a group that can hoop a press.
    Got to get a invulnerability entrance out from being packaged in underneath a basket a whole game.
    That’s how we get out rebounded.
    Oh, approbation a press is personification like a virginia press instead of THE FULL COURT PRESS FROM HELL.
    No doubt, Willaims is a best player.
    Anyone going in for a layup needs to totally combine on creation a shot, not usually perplexing to demeanour good. Looking good usually don’t get it done.

    I adore this team…but let’s face it. No one can shoot, no one can pass. We had far-reaching open good looks yet a pass was late or a shot was missed. We play good invulnerability yet usually when we score. Carter needs to start in place of Miles and maybe Staten needs to lay awhile to get his conduct screwed behind on straight. He never even challenged Baylor today. Look in a counterpart guys, you’re not as good as we think. It takes tough work and you’ve been holding a few games off here. Refocus or KState will slice we a new one on Wednesday.

      What would get Staten left would be us creation outward shots. Then they would have to come out from camping underneath and he could expostulate underneath. Man, a apparent pivotal to all of this would be if Adrain could fire like he did final yr.
      Watching his technique this yr. – that is not going to happen. we would advise him to change his outward shot totally and use scarcely zero many yet his legs in shooting. we see a lot of difficult arm transformation that looks awful. Just cocktail it with your feet. No need for a lot of arm transformation during all when you’re sharpened 3 pointers. Balance your weight, use your feet with a small jump, snap your wrist to propel a ball. Forget all a long, reticent arm transformation we are creation and we don’t need that many arch.
      Huggin’s biggest debility on offense is to set-up screens for his best shooters to get transparent outward shots. Connor is in there and they know to ensure him and were not removing any use out of him – set some screens out there for him.

    The genuine doubt during WVU is how prolonged will a new AD let these programs be mired in mediocrity.
    That will be a story to watch in a subsequent year or so.

    I’ve pronounced this before and I’ll contend it again.
    I consider Huggs’ (the realistic male that he is)
    coaching character has upheld him by. we trust he has a good basketball mind yet his character doesn’t work anymore. Just demeanour during Bobby Knight finished his career. He yelled and screamed compartment he was blue in a face yet he was never means to partisan tip players his final 5 or 6 years of coaching since today’s kids don’t respond to consistent ridicule. Only those who have no other place to go hang around yet that doesn’t meant they like it or grow from it.

    CSC eventuality staff member pronounced he over listened in a locker room after a game. “Gentlemen we will take a quote from DANA — wait until subsequent year if I’m still here” my possess thoughts == this group is wore out with this full justice press give it a mangle for one diversion and see what happens

      Huggs knows he’s not removing it done.
      The genuine problem is that he’s out of ideas and is incompetent to partisan tip talent to spin this disaster around.

    I consider it’s protected to contend Huggs has mislaid this team, usually like a past 3 seasons.
    No doubt, they’ve quit.
    Blowout waste are proof a point.

    Joe, Relax. we consider we’re available to voice a opinion about a bb program.
    The university pays a coaches astronomical amounts of money, and this is what they get in return?
    I have no problem with a teams losing games, yet when a coaches are paid a kind of income a university pays them and this is a result.
    We can get this with a good high propagandize coah and compensate him, maybe $250,000 a year.
