It's UConn Week!


That's right, boys and girls, it's UConn week. And what a big week it is.

Every year, when the schedule comes out, I circle this game as one of the biggest of the Mountaineers' season. With two national championships, eight Elite 8 appearances, and tons of All-Americans, UConn is one of the most storied programs in the country. Plus, you don't just go into their house and walk away with an easy victory.

The revenge factor has to be high this year, especially, since WVU dealt UConn a crushing defeat in the Big EAST Tournament just last March. Returning players from that team, including Haseem Thabeet, AJ Price, Jeff Adrien, and Jerome Dyson, join all-world freshman Kemba Walker to form the predicted #1 team in this year's Big EAST.

Throughout the week, we'll have plenty to talk about here on WBGV. Profiles of Jim Calhoun and Kemba Walker, and interview with Associate Head Coach George Blaney, and a recap of all of WVU's games at Gampel Pavillion over the years. It should be a fun week.
