YE OLDE NOTEBOOK:
Raised some eyebrows. Kind of like if Brooke Hogan held a seminar on the evils of reality TV.
But never fear, Mountaineers fans.
"They didn't have one," said WVU coach Bob Huggins. "That's just Truck."
Bryant has been part of WVU's ongoing problems. But so too have all of the Mountaineers, save for Kevin Jones.
"Been trying to figure out how to score," Huggins said.
The eyes certainly say that's WVU's problem, but the stats still say otherwise. Heading into the weekend, the Mountaineers were No. 4 of 16 Big East teams in scoring offense - and No. 11 in scoring defense. They were No. 6 in field goal percentage - and No. 14 in field goal percentage defense.
There are, however, two glaring deficiencies concerning WVU's offense - 3-point field goal percentage (No. 13, 32.5 percent) and free throw shooting (No. 14, 65.1 percent).
"There's nothing wrong with Deniz," Huggins said. "Kevin [Noreen] had surgery the day after [the Pitt game]. They told me it went well, but I don't know what that means. They said it's more than likely he's out for the rest of the year."
We've profiled Cook here before, but a call was placed to Aaron Pauley, his coach, for an update.
"He comes and goes," Pauley said. "He's still learning. But he lost a few more pounds. He's under 300 now and able to get up and down the floor a little bit better."
Pauley said the freshman is averaging between 17 and 18 points.
Anyway, the program is shooting another video to "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss. Author Homer Hickam and America's Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. have volunteered to read.
As has state legend Jerry West.
Should again be worth a watch. A fund-raiser, by the way, is being held March 15 at Brickstreet Insurance.
