    Kentucky fans may have had to watch a summer exhibition game on ESPN but I can’t imagine a conference game plus WVU is top 16

    It’s remarkable what Huggins has gotten out of that team.

    They have two legit P5 level starters on the entire roster (and both play same position), and yet were projected a week ago to be a 2-seed.

    Huggins can coach.

    WVU has really responded well after being named one of the top 16 seeds

    That's pretty far from the truth. We're probbaly as talented as we've been under Huggs.

    Tshiebwe, Culver, Matthews were all highly recruited kids. McBride is really good and gonna be an All Big 12 player next year. We have 2 of the best juco players in the country from last year. Jalen Bridges another highly recruited kid is redshirting. More talent coming in.

    We're just really young and playing like shit right now...especially the guards

    Yeah we suck right now.

    It's a shame we aren't in the ACC where we could just coast through conference play. Duke, Louisville and a bunch of stiffs this year.

    Very indicative of a young team. They have season highs and lows, and you have to ride it like a wave. Sometimes those highs and lows are vast even within one game, such as last night.

    Finish on a high note and come back next year with a legit chance to win the conference. KU will be down, and Baylor loses a lot, so I think WVU may very well be the favorite next year.

    how many times has he had games like he had last night? to compare Moss's RSJR year for Iowa
    5th on the team is scoring 9.2 ppg
    24.1 mpg
    2.9 rpg
    1.8 apg
    0.9 spg
    39.9% from the field
    79.9% from the FTL
    42.1% from 3

    his replacement
    RSFR Fredrick
    28.9 mpg
    11.2 ppg 3rd on the team
    2.0 rpg
    2.8 apg
    0.8 spg
    50% from the field
    78.6% from the FTL
    47.2% from 3

    Moss was/is not that big a loss,
    Fredrick has led the team in scoring in 4 times so far this season.

    how many times has he done that for Kansas?

    That's a pretty good year for a guy who doesn't start and really is only on the team this year to do 1 thing.

    IMO, he's living up to expectations and he seems to be getting better. I'm happy.

    the change of scenery is doing him good, but it does not change my opinion of him not being missed.

    So you're saying that you'd rather not have him on the roster.

    White hot take.

    If that’s all true, then Huggins sucks.

    I’ll stick to my original assessment, though. None of those guys, except the two bigs, would currently be in the rotation at KU or Baylor.

    Baylor and Kansas are the #1 and #3 ranked teams in the country... that's not even close to your original post. You said we only had two power 5 level players.
