GAZETTE - How different will your roster be next season?
HUGGINS - It will be different. We have three seniors. I really haven't talked about next year yet.
GAZETTE - After WVU's disappointing football season, head coach Dana Holgorsen made assistant coaching changes. Will there be any changes within your staff?
HUGGINS - We went to five consecutive NCAA tournaments before this season and a Final Four. The most consecutive NCAA tournament appearances at our school is six. That was from 1955 to 1960. That was a long time ago.
GAZETTE - The schedule this season proved to be very difficult for your team. Will you dial that back at all next season?
HUGGINS - No.
GAZETTE - Since the end of the season, have you noticed any change in the receptions you've received from recruits?
HUGGINS - No.
GAZETTE - Is there anything the university or athletic department can do to help your efforts in returning to success?
HUGGINS - No. They've been great. And I haven't asked for anything more.
GAZETTE - Finally, are there any words you'd like to get out to your program's fans?
HUGGINS - We're going to be fine. We kinda got hit with a whole lot of things at one time. You can't lose the kind of guys we lost. But I've never made excuses in the past. Facts are facts.
