The West Virginia University offense was much closer to Coach Bob Huggins' standards during an 85-64 victory over Rutgers at the Rutgers Athletic Center on Wednesday.
When Saturday approaches, Huggins would like to see his team continue to piece together games like that one where the offense and defense came to play.
The Mountaineers (11-4, 2-1 Big East) host Georgetown (13-1, 3-0) at noon.
On a side note, 6-foot-9 junior forward Deniz Kilicli put together one of his better games in a WVU uniform with 16 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Huggins said the former Mountain State Academy star has come a long way since his days playing in Beckley.
"He's worlds better than what he was," said Huggins, whose big man averages 25.2 minutes, 11.2 points (third on the team) and 5.6 rebounds (second). "The flip side of that, when you have as much potential as Deniz does, sometimes having great potential becomes a big burden.
"Deniz hasn't reached near his ceiling in terms of getting better."
What has become obvious as WVU's season reaches the meat of the Big East schedule is that the Mountaineers go as senior's Kevin Jones and Darryl "Truck" Bryant go.
