MORGANTOWN —

All three are guards.

Junior center Aaric Murray was the top rebounder for WVU with six. Hinds also had four assists and four steals.

“Our freshmen are going to make a whole lot of shots (as they grow older),” Huggins predicted. “They made plays around the basket.

“The exciting thing is we’re now 5-5 in the league. There are going to be some people lose (last Saturday).”

One more win would put the Mountaineers into fifth place in the Big 12 standings and two wins could tie the team for second place.

“We’re getting tougher,” Huggins noted. “We’re getting tougher. And sometimes I think being too nice in athletics is a detriment and we’re getting tougher.”

In their only previous meeting, Baylor nipped West Virginia 83-81 in overtime at the Las Vegas Classic last season.
