WVU coaching staff may be better than current starters.

Eilert started at KState...two others played at OkState and DeMarr Johnson was a lottery pick in NBA.

I know this is a B12 road game at a traditionally tough place to pick up a W, but this it feels like it's a taking care of business type game nonetheless - especially with what we've got upcoming. Hope we do so.

It's starting to look like Chris Spatola may do as many Baylor games as John Morris this year.

A healthy Edwards gives WVU much needed height, athleticism and skill. He's pretty good.

perimeter D has been great. just need to keep Edwards from getting low post position

About the only negative so far is he's taken Missi to school more than once down low.

Missi with 3 fouls now. not good
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Yep. Every team that's blown out WVU has basically gotten Edwards in foul trouble early.
historian

How many fouls have we had in the last minute or two?
This is ridiculous!

It doesn't help that the only players who have taken a FT for us tonight are 6'10"+
