    Things didn’t go as planned for No. 21 Oklahoma as they made their way from Norman to Morgantown for their game at West Virginia on Wednesday night.

    Baylor entered Tuesday night’s game at home, needing a win. The Bears had been dropped from the rankings, in the midst of a four-game conference losing streak. A matchup with West Virginia seemed like the opportune moment for the Bears to right the ship. Juwan Staten had different ideas, when his reverse layup put the…

    Markel Brown, Demarcus Holland

    It’s been 25 days since Markel Brown made a three-pointer. Seriously. The last time that he hit a jump shot from beyond the arc, you still had more than a week to buy your mom that last-minute Christmas present that you hadn’t thought of yet. It was five games ago when Brown hit that three…

    West Virginia Athletics

    Much has, and will, be made about the new points of emphasis in college basketball regarding contact. With the goal being to increase scoring after the sport’s worst season in five decades, the days of using a hand or forearm while defending a player are (seemingly) over. A number of touch fouls that have been…

    West Virginia Virginia Tech Basketball

    If there’s a clear-cut loser during this year’s Tip-Off Marathon, then it’s West Virginia. The Mountaineers blew a double-digit first-half lead to lose at Virginia Tech 87-82, despite the Hokies missing suspended starting forward C.J. Barksdale. This is a really bad loss for a West Virginia team hoping to compete in the top-half of the…

    Oct 22, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Elijah Macon

    Elijah Macon is proving to be quite a headache for the West Virginia coaching staff. The No. 56 recruit in the Class of 2013, Macon has not yet been cleared to play by the NCAA, leaving open the possibility that he could be deemed a non-qualifier. That means he would take the Ben McLemore route,…
