  7. West Virginia's Shot Selection Major Factor in UConn Loss

    Huggs on the right there pretty much sums it up. The 61-55 loss to the Huskies was both frustrating and refreshing. Frustrating because we definitely took some ill-advised shots...

  8. WVU Keeps Rolling and I Got Out Just In Time

    The best thing about this bowl game with UNC is that it's not a long drive for either school, and that's showing in ticket sales. When I first read this title, "Seven UNC Players Selected to All-ACC Teams," I was thinking it meant first team...
