MORGANTOWN - Bob Huggins spent a lot of time Saturday afternoon talking about commitment.
And just to be clear here, he wasn't talking about how his team had embraced that concept.
"It takes commitment on their part," Huggins said. "We go out and you know a guy is going to drive right because he hasn't driven left all year. And then when you let him drive right, that's not much of a commitment.
"When I'm screaming after a timeout to get to where you're supposed to get to run a set, that's not commitment."
The subject of commitment was a topic Huggins wanted to dwell upon for obvious reasons. The fact of the matter is, his Mountaineers aren't the most talented team in the Big 12, nor are they the most physically blessed. In order to win, this is a team that must do the little things right.
And doing that takes commitment.
After West Virginia had been pretty much taken to the woodshed by Baylor Saturday afternoon - the Bears having won 88-75 to deal WVU a nearly crushing blow to any NCAA tournament hopes it might have had - questioning that commitment seemed natural.
And Huggins did so extensively.
"We had a week [between games] and they all have iPads with all the breakdowns,'' Huggins said. "They have breakdowns on the team and the people they're going to guard. I'm not sure what they did on those iPads. Maybe they played Spider. But they didn't watch the tape.''
