West Virginia’s beautifully flawed basketball team is starting to find its rhythm

The Mountaineers, uh, find a way What a difference two games can make. Seems like just last week we had half the fan base ready to do a nose dive off the top of the Coliseum. Oh right, that actually was just last week. As usual, Huggs hit the nail on the head: To be honest though, it's kind of hard to blame anybody - dropping 5 out of 6 is enough to make even the staunchest of fans...

West Virginia Gives Up Another Double-Digit Lead In Lawrence

I have nothing good to say about this game. Any hope the West Virginia Mountaineers (19-8, 8-6 Big 12) had for at least a share of the Big 12 regular season title is probably out the window after they gave up another double digit lead in the second half to the Kansas Jayhawks (21-6, 10-4 Big 12).
