West Virginia Basketball Receives Five First-Place Votes, Picked To Finish 2nd In Conference

After never having been picked to finish higher than fifth in its history within the Big East Conference, the league's coaches picked WVU to finish second this year, just three votes shy of favorite Villanova. This voting included five of fifteen coaches picking the Mountaineers to finish first.

Think about what I just wrote: never, ever, have the Mountaineers been picked to finish better than fifth, yet this year we skyrocket to second (and damn near first). That should give you a quick synopsis of how meteoric the rise of WVU basketball has been under Bob Huggins.

Really, the sky is honestly the limit, which is a feeling that I have never felt in WVU basketball, or even football, before.
