The Mountaineers will be welcoming the Virginia Cavaliers to Morgantown tomorrow in an important Big12-ACC matchup. The Cavaliers check in at No. 12 in this weeks rankings.
This is an important early game for the Mountaineers as they have been on an 8-game winning streak ever since their opening night loss to Texas A&M. The Mountaineers have played lesser opponents since the loss to A&M, but have been able to gain some chemistry on offense and defense. Coach Bob Huggins will look to motivate the team, to capture a victory that will certainly boost their resume for the NCAA tournament.
