Game Preview

The Mountaineers have one more tune-up game as part of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational at home in the Coliseum tonight before heading out west to Vegas to face the Richmond Spiders on Thanksgiving. Tonight it's the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats of the MEAC.

The Wildcats are led by Jordan Potts' 19.7 points per game. Mario Moody's 14.7 ppg and Ricky Johnson's 12.0 ppg are the only other Wildcats to average in double figures thus far in this early season. On the boards, LaRon Smith pulls down 9.7 rebounds per game and Moody is next averaging 9 boards.

In short, this is another game WVU should and will win comfortably. The question remains as to how many fouls get called and how upset Huggs is after the game.

Prediction: WVU 98, Bethune-Cookman 62
