The NIT gets underway this evening for the Mountaineers in the nation's capital to take on our old Big East foes, the Georgetown Hoyas. This game, as your probably already know is not in the usual Verizon Center venue, but on the Georgetown campus in McDonough Gymnasium. The small venue, coupled with free access to the Georgetown student body will make this a much more hostile arena than usual. Expect it to be rocking.
There is still no word on Juwan Staten's health status. Playing this game without him at full strength will make this challenge all that more difficult.
