Sunday Post-Game Hangover: Rutgers (1/15/12) Edition

As a friend of mine so eloquently put it yesterday afternoon, there are 3 certainties in life: death, taxes...and WVU beating Rutgers. Kevin Jones did what Kevin Jones does and the Mountaineers put away the Scarlet Knights early, leading 48-22 at halftime on their way to a 84-60 victory. Complete coverage of the rout is inside, including several player features and coverage of the players reunion that was attended by over 100 former Mountaineer cagers.
