West Virginia Basketball: season recap

The 2015 season came to a close after an embarrassing defeat last Thursday against Kentucky. It wasn’t much of a competition as the Wildcats dominated the Mountaineers in every aspect of the game. Some might say that the domination was brought on by the comments of Daxter Miles Jr. and I would agree it was a contributing factor. Poor shooting and stout defense by Kentucky also...

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Almost anything can happen when fifth-seeded West Virginia takes on fourth-seeded Maryland on Sunday night for a spot in the Sweet 16.

Oklahoma St.-West Virginia Preview

Key injuries too much to overcome for West Virginia Basketball

Coming into this game West Virginia had won their previous three games and were tied for 2nd in the Big-12 conference. Senior guard Juwan Staten was a surprise inactive for WVU with a knee injury.
