"Scoring will go up," Harris said. "We've got to start moving our feet. Guys are going to be quick and they're going to attack us and (officials) are going to call a lot of fouls. We've got to learn to sit down and guard."
WVU played the exhibition without sophomore guard Terry Henderson, a projected starter who sat out with inflamed shin muscles. A second shooter, junior college forward Remi Dibo, only got off the bench in the final few minutes. He had knee surgery three weeks ago to repair a meniscus tear in his knee.
Harris addressed the void on the perimeter and on the scoreboard with 30 points and three 3-pointers. He shot 6-for-12 and added eight rebounds, but also three turnovers to two assists.
"Even though I had a high scoring game, I felt like my shot selection could have been better," Harris said. "I feel like I've got to stay within myself and help the team get better. At certain points, I probably looked bad out there, even though I had an overall good performance."
Huggins said he could have played Dibo more in the exhibition had Dibo been healthy enough to practice more before the game. He said Henderson should be able to play tonight, as well. Their presence really won't change what Huggins had to do against Fairmont State.
Freshman Nathan Adrian started and played 31 minutes, and though the 6-foot-9 Morgantown High graduate might not start or play as much, he'll certainly be on the floor a lot after making six 3-pointers and scoring 21 points Monday.
The 6-9 Williams started and likely will again. He had four points and 13 rebounds. Freshman Brandon Watkins played 12 minutes with foul trouble, but the 6-9 Watkins had four rebounds and blocked two shots. They're part of a nine-player rotation if Henderson and Dibo both play.
"They're not dumb," Huggins said. "The only non-freshman on the front line is Kevin Noreen. They know they have to play and they know they have to be productive. We've spent a great deal of time talking about doing what you're good at doing."
