WVU actually had a winning streak over kansas-had beaten them 3 or 4 straight in morgantown until last year. WVU tends to lose games they shouldnt-like to you guys in morgantown. i really think depth and lack of consistent scoring from our great defensive guards was wvu's downfall last year. Wvu's guards wont be as good on defense but they will score a lot more.

I think the big 12 is in for a treat with Jordan McCabe. 5'11 white kid that can dunk any way he wants and doesnt miss 3 pointers and is best ball handler ive seen since Pistol pete. the kid's no look passes are unreal. he will be fun to watch even if wvu just makes it to sweet 16 again.

Carter averaged 17 a game (good for 11th in conference) and Miles averaged 13 a game. Your incoming guards won’t be as good offensively next year either.

Kansas has the best coach and players. WVU and any other school would need multiple classes with 4-5 star recruits to even touch them. Not saying Huggins or their players are bad but more so that you are competing with the blue blood who has tradition and scoreboard.

If I was betting on anyone to end the ku streak, it would never be on wvu. You guys don’t win anything.

wvu also signed the number 1 rated and no 5 rated jucos in the country, as well as adding mathews(a clear upgrade over teddy allen). anyway im just saying wvu may be flying under the radar and be a good bet to make cash.
Beat Kansas and then you have a point. Until then you are wishing.

Just like all the Texas people that keep thinking they are back in football every year.

Huggins could drink any other coach under the table.

I will take this bet anyday. Nolaeer, you seem like a good guy. Its just that every year you say this is WV year in football and basketball. Maybe not every year but I think everyone would agree it feels like it. So like I said I bet confidently that WV doesn’t win in football or badketball

Accurate. Eddie could have hung with him back in the day though. Larry Eustachy would be honorable mention.

The problem is, is that WVU looks really good first half of the big 12 season, but since it is round robin their style of play is easily recognizable the second time around. This causes their downfall and for them to...like always...fall to the middle of the big 12. I would like to see WVU do well in the big 12.

I think they wear themselves out late in the season.

It appears summer got completed early this year. We have both the WVU will obliterate everyone in football and has the greatest qb to ever walk the earth and now the WVU has the top two players at every position in b-ball post.

Reaching really hard here. I respect WVU hoops and I like Huggins. I still stand by my statement of Kansas wrecking the Big XII.

Lamont West is not a first round NBA pick, I don’t even think he’ll get drafted. And Konate is more likely a 2nd round pick. Do you really think Konate is better than Azbuike at KU? Because that site has Azbuike as a second rounder.
