Word out of Morgantown is that West Virginia University is working on a new contract for men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins.

Mountaineers’ athletic director Oliver Luck said the new pact should be completed in the next few months.

West Virginia has participated in the NCAA Tournament in each of Huggins’ five seasons at his alma mater.

In 2008, the former Cincinnati Bearcats and Kansas State coach signed a contract that currently pays him at least $20 million in guaranteed income through the year 2019.

The Dayton Flyers men’s basketball team opened up their pre-season with a 92-78 win over the Walsh University Cavaliers in an exhibition game at UD Arena.

The Flyer fans had a chance to see the new uptempo offense that the team will be using under new head coach Archie Miller. The results of the new brand of basketball were excellent. UD used great ball movement to shoot 53 percent (31-58) from the field and 48 percent (11-23) from behind the 3-point arc.

Walsh is located in North Canton, Ohio, has a student enrollment of 2,500, a catholic school which was established in 1960. The school is known as being the first coaching job for current West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins.

Redshirt junior Josh Benson led Dayton with 23 points and eight rebounds. Redshirt junior Kevin Dillard scored 16 points and went 8-for-9 at the charity stripe for UD. Senior Luke Fabrizius chipped in with 12 points and senior Chris Johnson from Columbus Brookhaven put up 10 points.

The Flyers rattled the Cavaliers all night, forcing 16 turnovers which led to 26 points for Dayton.

UD open the game with a red-hot hand from the floor, going on a 7-0 run and converting on its first five shots. At one point the Flyers led 41-22 in the first half and 53-37 at intermission.

Dayton never trailed in the game, despite a strong shooting performance from Kenny Kornowski who was 10-of-16 scoring 30 points.

Nine Flyers saw at least 14 minutes of action with Dillard leading the way with 29 minutes and Johnson playing 28.

The Flyers bench outscored the Walsh bench 30-5 with Fabrizius leading the Dayton subs with 12 points.

The West Virginia Mountaineers and head coach Bob Huggins have been adding transfers lately.

Last month, former LaSalle center Aaric Murray announced he was transferring to the school. Murray was LaSalle’s best player, leading the team in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.

Huggins on Monday (June 6), Huggins has added another player in former Dayton point guard Juwan Staten.

Staten started 34 games as a freshman for the Flyers last season. He averaged 8.5 points and 5.4 assists in 29 minutes per game. He left Dayton, becuase he didn’t like the slow tempo play of former head coach Brian Gregory, now at Georgia Tech.

Huggins said that Staten has signed a grant-in-aid to attendĀ  West Virginia.

Both players will have to sit out the 2011-2012 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

When the Cincinnati Bearcats are playing well and winning games, Yancy Gates is usually leading the way.

The Bearcats used their defense to stop the quick-tempo Tigers who were averaging 81.4 points per game.

Missouri (23-11), led in scoring by Ricardo Ratcliffe with 13 points, went 11 minutes without scoring a field goal.

The Cincinnati Bearcats have had a huge season that probably saved head coach Mick Cronin’s job. UC has a 24-7, 11-7 Big East Conference record that has given them a good lock on an NCAA Tournament berth for the first time since Bob Huggins was fired.

They’ve closed the season strong, winning five of the past 6 games, including two over the reeling Georgetown Hoyas (21-9, 10-8).

Cincinnati upset #17 Georgetown, 69-47. The Bearcats connected on 20 consecutive free throws late in the game, finishing the game 24 of 30 from the free throw line.

Yancy Gates scored 10 of his 13 points from the free throw line in the win for UC.
