With Joe Alexander not playing due to an injured groin, Joe Mazzulla took the Bulls by the horns in the second half and sparked the Mountaineers to victory.
Huggins tried to spin Alexander'ss absence into a positive, saying he told the team, "at least our turnovers will be cut in half this game." He was right.
Even though it was against a poor USF team, it was a league road victory, without one of the WVU's best players, and despite another poor shooting night.
All wins are incredibly valuable to a possible NCAA trip, even if they're ugly. And this one definetly was.
P.S. Smailligan still sucks.
