Game Thread: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Akron Zips

Tonight at home, the Mountaineers begin what can only be described as a critical and difficult stretch of non-conference games when they take on the Zips from Akron. If WVU can get through this sequence of games with a few wins, they will have already established themselves with a solid RPI before Big East play begins. We'll see how the freshman really have developed over the last couple of games since the Kent State debacle or if Coach Huggins still has a long way to go to get through to the youngsters. It'll also be interesting to see if Kevin Jones can continue his recent hot streak and if Deniz Kilicli can establish himself down low against the Akron seven footer.
