West Virginia basketball will be wearing these sweet gold shoes with the blue Nike swoosh along with gold socks and all-white uniforms when they take on the Bucknell Bison in today’s opening round game of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. The Mountaineers have had a great season so far, winning 26 games and making it back to the Big 12 Tournament Championship before once again falling in the title game.
Most experts have West Virginia winning this game against Bucknell but they do note that the size of the Bison could give the Mountaineers some trouble. You don’t luck into 26 wins, even if you do play in the Patriot League.
