As WVU guard Sean McNeil tied his career high in points with 26, former teammates Oscar Tshiebwe and Emmitt Matthews Jr. were cheering on. Tshiebwe played a season and a half with McNeil, while Matthews played a full two.

Tshiebwe has looked incredible this season, putting up 16.1 points and 15.2 rebounds per game for Kentucky. The former Mountaineer big is looking to become an All-American this season.

Since transferring to Washington back in April, Matthews has adapted into his new role with the Huskies. The Tacoma, WA, native has increased his numbers, averaging 11.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.5 steals through 12 games. Matthews had 16 points on 50 percent shooting against a top-10 Arizona team last week.

McNeil responded to Tshiebwe, giving love back to the “Big O.”
