MORGANTOWN — o o o o o o
Volodymyr Gerun, WVU’s 6-10 forward from the Ukraine, played 12 minutes in last Saturday’s loss at Purdue and did not score. He was 0-for-5 from the floor, had two rebounds and blocked two shots.
Aaron Brown, 6-5 sophomore guard, also played after a long drought and scored seven points in 11 minutes.
Huggins said the players, not the coach, determine playing time.
“A.B. hadn’t played in quite a while, and I think he proved in practice that he deserved to play, so we played him,” Huggins said. “I’m not a proponent of giving guys things just to give it to them. That’s totally up to him. We gave him an opportunity.
“I don’t think there is anybody who can honestly say they haven’t had opportunities.”
