The Shotgun/Throwdown: Preseason starts for West Virginia basketball

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.

Preseason practice has started for the West Virginia men’s basketball team and Hall of Fame coach Bob Huggins has a few things that he wants to see from this year’s team.

The first thing that Huggins wants to see from his WVU team is competitiveness. He believes that last year’s team wasn’t as competitive as they should’ve been, but he’s confident that the Mountaineers will be more competitive this season.

“Huggy Bear” also wants his team to have toughness in the 2022-23 season.
