“I think obviously [the players] are excited to play. I never had any doubt that we wouldn’t play in the tournament. I thought we were getting better and better,” WVU HC Bob Huggins said.
West Virginia enters the NCAA Tournament 19-14 with seven Big 12 wins. Maryland finished with a 21-12 record under first-year head coach Kevin Willard.
WVU returns to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2021, where the Mountaineers reached the round of 32.
