This article is part of our College Hoops Barometer series.West Virginia found a way to slow freshman sensation Trae Young of Oklahoma. The Mountaineers used their patented Bob Huggins full-court pressure to hound Young into eight turnovers Saturday. Young also shot just 3-of-12 from three-point range in an 89-76 win for West Virginia. The Mountaineers check in at No. 2 in the nation, their highest ranking in almost 60 years, riding a 14-game winning streak after losing the season opener to Texas A&M. Add in the impending return of the suspended Esa Ahmad, who was second in scoring and third in rebounding last season, and the Mountaineers may end up as serious contenders in what has been a wild, unpredictable season thus far.
Let's take a look at some more movers and shakers in this week's College Hoops Barometer.
