Biggest shame being on ESPN app is that probably unless you are a WVa or BU fan, it wasn't watched. People need to watch this team!
Isn't it great that our last regular season conference game at WVU (which could be a huge one - for us at least) is also relegated to streaming on ESPN+.....

If by trading baskets, you mean built a 20-plus point lead and coasted to the finish line, then yes we did. But neither the second-half score nor the final score were indicative of how one-sided this game was essentially from start to finish. Outside of an 8-0 run to end the first half and a bunch of garbage points late against subs, West Virginia was thoroughly dominated today.
