After a 79-52 loss at Purdue, sophomore Juwan Staten agreed with West Virginia coach Bob Huggins that the Mountaineers “don’t play hard enough.”
The point guard said repeated mistakes are as frustrating to the team as they are to Huggins.
“As the season goes on, you typically get better, but some things we haven’t got better at,” Staten said. “We’re still making mistakes we made early in the season. I don’t really know where that comes from.”
With WVU in a funk and coming off a horrendous loss on national television, what’s the motivation going forward?
“The most motivating factor is that we’re 8-9,” Staten said. “That’s all the motivation we need, right there.”
