As you fill out your brackets you might want to keep West Virginia in mind after a upbeat Coach Bob Huggins joined The Cook and Poni Show on Tuesday to discuss yet another trip to the dance for his Mountaineers.

Huggins doesn't mind having to travel to San Diego for the opening round or to be in as a #5 seed. 

"I like the way we are playing right now," Huggins told the guys. "They are going to be tough games. I think Murray State is better than most think they are."

Huggins also talked to the guys about the decision to replace Kevin Stallings after just 2 years at Pitt.

"I don't like to see any coach get fired," Huggins said. "Kevin was in a  really bad situation coming in there"

Huggins says it is going to take awhile for Pitt and any coach to come in here to get the players to adjust from being a hard physical Big East conference switching to a much more up temp ACC Conference.

He also said that he has worked with Pitt Athletic Director Heather Lyke before and he says he has full confidence that she will make a great selection for the future of Pitt basketball.
