This years team reminds me of UK's in Gillispie's last year. Two star caliber players (Truck and KJ/Meeks and Patterson), and either a young or lousy supporting cast. Make no mistake, Huggins will get the most out of his players, but like most freshmen, it will be a year or two before you reap the rewards.
I think Gary Browne will be the one to watch. If he can fill Mazzulla's shoes WVU will make the tournament and probably do ok this season in the Big East. Unless Huggins becomes John Calipari in terms of developing freshmen, its going to be a long season.
