Tonight the men's basketball season officially gets underway when Oral Roberts visits the WVU Coliseum to take on the young Mountaineers under Coach Bob Huggins. Coach Huggins enters tonight's contest with 691 career victories under his belt and when asked earlier in the preseason what it would mean to him when he reached the rare mark of 700 career victories, Huggs answered dryly with another one of his Huggs-isms:
"It means we're nine and something."
It should be an interesting season to watch unfold as the 7 newcomers learn and grow (and run the treadmill). The question is whether not they'll progress enough to secure the needed hard fought victories in the last year of the rugged Big East (as it exists now).
