    Don't sell West Virginia short in the Big 12!

    Looking at their upcoming schedule, and where they stand currently with their overall and Big 12 records, I think West Virginia might surprise people with their play down the stretch. West Virginia in the NCAA Tourament is a far reach, but not impossible!
    Coach Huggins as much criticism he gets he is a hell of a coach, and his teams rarely miss the big dance.

    All this being said, if I am a Big 12 team, wanting to get a win in the Big 12 Tournament against West Virginia, or in Morgantown for that matter- it will not be easy to come by...

    West Virginia's only chance is to win the Big 12 tourney

    I hearing the same things regarding Texas with Kabongo coming back that they will make a surge...Not jumping on that wagon. I think Texas IS done. West Virginia?? Not so fast.

    They have a home game against Tech. Outside of that, I wouldn't be surprised in them losing any of there other games

    Re: Don't sell West Virginia short in the Big 12!

    We are only 1 game ahead of them and still travel to Morgantown so the chances of them finishing tied or above us are not as unrealistic as most here would believe. They have no shot at the title or tourney IMO, but they are playing better and have a shot to finish near the 6 spot depending on how things play out.

    I see WV going 3-5 down the stretch, maybe 4-4. That puts them at 8-10, 9-9. Even if they get to 9-9, they would need to do some work in the Big 12 tourney.

    Trent Johnson at TCU is a hell of a coach too, but they suck this year. Even if a coach is good, they still need good enough players to win. WV has the rep of a tough team, but other than that they aren't good, no matter how good of a coach Huggins is.

    That program is somewhat scary if they can somehow start to recruit. He is a great coach.
