A game with hype and so much hope ended with a loss to Xavier for Bob Huggins’ team.
As expected, Mountaineer Nation was more than willing to offer their thoughts about West Virginia fading down the stretch in the game and squandering a chance at a big win. Some ficuses on the potential this team is still showing while others are now worried they got their hopes up only to be let down. A Mountaineer still waiting to get on the floor with his team even weighed in on the game.
That was upsetting, but after my initial frustration, I have not lost the faith. The end of the second half was about the worst we could possibly play. It’s early and we will learn from that and get better! Even the Final Four team lost games. 🤞🏼 https://t.co/UvtZTMU6B3

WVU was hanging tough on the road against a good team, then legit stopped scoring.
Foul trouble, bad turnovers, and a few missed bunnies lead to WVU’s 2nd loss of the season.
Podcast later tonight.

This WVU-Xavier game is incredible.

There’s plenty of reason to believe in the potential of this West Virginia team, but they do need to pick up a signature win at some point. Beating those you should beat and being competitive with the quality teams is nice and this group will add Jose Perez, but still… https://t.co/ycj3rkmgXU

Unless the committee awards 17 wins, wvu is an NIT team

Played a damn good, experienced, and well coached basketball team, on the road, in a hostile environment. Should’ve won the game and think we were clearly the better team, but I don’t think WVU fans have any reason to worry about this team! They’ll be fine!

Death. Taxes. WVU basketball blowing a second half lead.
