The Mountaineers last played the Hoyas on March 18, 2014, and lost 77-65 but were victorious the five games prior in 2012, 2011, twice in 2010 and one in 2009.
The history of these two programs dates back to the first match-up in 1922 and they’ve played a total of 34 games.
March 13 marked the 10th anniversary of WVU’s Big East Tournament championship win over Georgetown. Led by Mountaineer great Da’Sean Butler, WVU won 60-58 for its first-ever Big East Title. That Mountaineer team finished the 2009-10 season with a 31-7 record.
WVU’s other non-conference opponents in 2020-21 will include Farleigh Dickinson, Pitt, Stony Brook, Bowling Green, Robert Morris, Purdue, Youngstown, and Miami (OH).
