MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- During the course of two blowout victories, No. 19 West Virginia emptied its bench and coasted through sloppy stretches.Only two members of the Mountaineers (2-0) played 20 minutes in each game as coach Bob Huggins experimented with various groupings, paying particular interest to the progress of six freshmen. He used all 14 available players in Mondays 107-66 romp against Mississippi Valley State, with only guard Daxter Miles sitting out with an extended illness.When you play that many guys its hard to be sharp, Huggins said. Were going to have to limit the rotation, but at least those two games were a good chance to see what players can do -- or not do.After starting 65 games the previous two seasons, Miles is not expected back for Sunday afternoons game against New Hampshire (2-1), a mid-major program coming off an erratic week. The Wildcats stunned Temple 57-52, only to come crashing down Thursday during a 65-57 home loss to Abilene Christian.Theres a right way to lose and theres a wrong way to lose, and we lost the wrong way, said UNH coach Bill Herrion.I saw it right from the beginning. We had a couple of opportunities early to attack the rim and make layups, and we were just flipping the ball nonchalantly and not going up strong.Guard Jaleen Smith (18 points, 9.7 rebounds) ignited New Hampshires second-half rally against Abilene Christian, and complements the inside-out skills of forward Tanner Leissner (14.3 points,10 rebounds).West Virginia, with its full-court press turning many possessions into scrambles, generates points from a number of angles, including forward Nathan Adrian (14 points, 8. 5 rebounds) and guard Jevon Carter (10 points, five assists). Six other players are averaging 8.5 points or more so far, though Huggins hasnt been pleased with the defensive intensity.A 64-28 halftime lead on Mississippi Valley State gave way to lethargic moments over the final 20 minutes, leaving Huggins to grouse.Id like for us to play 40 minutes, he said. What the good teams here have learned is that when you get somebody on the mat you try to keep them there. You dont let them up and say Lets try this again. This team hasnt learned that.Sundays matchup opens the NIT Tipoff, an event that will take West Virginia to Brooklyn during Thanksgiving weekend for games against Illinois and then Florida State or Temple.Huggins cautioned his team not to overlook UNH, which is building off the programs first 20-win season.New Hampshires good, he said. Theyre not Illinois, obviously, and theyre not Florida State, theyre not Virginia -- but theyre pretty good.We kinda didnt get ready for 2/3 zone a couple years ago and almost lost to Monmouth.
