West Virginia’s shooting woes in the first half on Friday scare me, but the turnaround in the second half made me feel a little better. I think Richmond is a genuinely good basketball team, but the Mountaineers are just a little bit better. Huggs gets win number 887 this afternoon in Morgantown.

West Virginia 74, Richmond 69
