Texas, Texas Tech, TCU, Baylor, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The shortest trip is 870 miles to play Iowa State.
“You look at it one of two ways — either we’re prepared because we do travel more than virtually every team in the country, or we’re going to be worn out,” Huggins said. “So hopefully it’s not we’re worn out.”
One player Huggins won’t have to worry about is senior guard Jevon Carter, who is known for his focus and work ethic and wants to get the Mountaineers back to the Final Four for the first time since 2010.
Carter typically is the first player working on his jumper and free throws two hours before games. And when Huggins showed up 45 minutes before the start of Tuesday’s practice, Carter was already on the court.
“He had been in there already for who knows how long getting shots up,” Huggins said.
