Loading Scores

For only the sixth time in WVU Coliseum history (for men's basketball), WVU welcomes to Morgantown, the number one ranked (coaches poll in this instance) team in the country. This time it's the Kansas Jayhawks. The last four times, our beloved Mountaineers have come up on the wrong side of the scoreboard. The most recent #1 team to beat the Mountaineers in the Coliseum was UConn (last two actually) in February of 2006 and January of 1999. Before that was UMass in January of 1995 and Temple in February of 1988.

But, there is always that first one that we can look back to for hope. In 1983, UNLV came to town ranked number one and left with a 87-78 defeat. Can the Mountaineers and the Coliseum crowd conjure up some of that old magic? Statistics say no, but there is that hope that we all cling to.

And, as always...
