The Zags got a dunk on the other end to push the lead to 21-6.
Kilicli and Murray had position on the inside at times, but seldom got the ball in the low post against Gonzaga's zone defense. That led to long 3-point attempts by a team that hasn't proven it can shoot from the perimeter.
"We shot the ball terrible," Huggins said. "Truth of the matter is we shot terrible against Glenville (in the exhibition). As I said to them, maybe somebody ought to look around and say 'I can't shoot' and pass it to somebody else."
Of course, Huggins isn't content with ball movement, either.
"We don't pass it very well," he said. "We just don't pass the ball. We don't."
West Virginia's issues are myriad, but Kilicli said he thinks they're correctable before the next game, Nov. 22, against Marist in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
"Obviously we have a lot to fix," Huggins said. "How do you fix them all, you know?"
WVU missed 23 of 26 shots from 3-point range against Gonzaga, which makes the Mountaineers a brutal 11-for-74 from beyond the arc in its past four games. That includes the 2011-12 regular season finale, the Big East Tournament, the NCAA Tournament and Monday's season opener. It does not include last week's exhibition game against Glenville State, when the team missed 13 of 14 of its 3-point attempts.
You've got to go back to Game 12 of Huggins' 978-game coaching career to find a loss as lopsided as this. The 34-point shellacking is slightly worse than the 72-40 defeat Huggins' Walsh team suffered to Fairmont State (72-40) in 1980, the first season wins and losses went on his ledger.
WVU is 4-10 in its last 14 games and Huggins faces an arduous path to 20 wins in the program's inaugural season in the Big 12.
If his club doesn't reach that mark, it'll be the first time a Huggins' club won fewer than 20 games in consecutive seasons.
WVU has plenty of time to cure its ills in non-conference play, and perhaps back-to-back lopsided losses to Gonzaga will show the Mountaineer players the way to cohesiveness.
If there was any group more organized than the rambunctious student body, it was the Bulldogs' well-oiled on-court product that was being touted as a Final Four contender after routing WVU.
"They are the same Gonzaga," Kilicli said. "They played really disciplined and we didn't play disciplined.
"Our offense looked like street ball ... if you don't play disciplined you never know what the other guys are going to do."
