  • West Virginia Men’s Basketball 2019-20 - WV Sports

    "Things can’t get much worse for head coach Bob Huggins and the West Virginia men’s basketball team than it did in 2018-19.

    The Mountaineers reached the proverbial bottom last season after losing 21 games and enduring through a brow-raising amount of attrition. Entering year 38 as a head coach, Huggins will do well to bury last year’s dismal record as far back in his mind as he can by providing a successful campaign this year. And after welcoming in a host of talented new comers and reassuring fans that last year’s outcome won’t be duplicated, there’s a fair amount of palpable buzz surrounding the Mountaineers in 2019....

    Season Preview and Prediction - Non-conference
    Rhode Island, St. John’s, Ohio State, and Pitt headline what will be another challenging non-conference schedule for the Mountaineers. I expect West Virginia to split those four games with wins over Pitt and Rhode Island. Playing Ohio State and Cleveland and St. John’s in New York are as good as true away games in hostile environments for the Mountaineers, but valuable learning experiences. Huggins will also take his team abroad to participate in the Cancun Challenge where West Virginia will take on Wichita State or South Carolina on November 27th after contests against Northern Colorado, Boston and Northern Iowa. West Virginia will wrap-up non-conference play against Missouri in the SEC/BIG XII challenge. Non-conference record — 10-3...

    Big XII Record — 10-8 ; 5th place finish
    So, the big question is really whether or not West Virginia can return to the NCAA tournament. A 20-11 regular season record is probably good enough to be in the conversation. Even a .500 record in conference play will good enough for the Mountaineers to have a compelling argument. If the Mountaineers make it to the semi-finals of the Big XII tournament again AND boast a winning record in conference play like I predict, it won’t even be a question."

      "A look at five games to circle on your calendar....

      So to kick off part of our preview #content, I’m here to bring you some content you can inject directly into your calendar. Grab that iPhone, open up the calendar app, and take a ride with me as we go 1-5 marking the best nights of the nonconference season that deserve your attention.

      1. Oklahoma State vs. Syracuse (NIT Season Tip Off)...
      2. Oklahoma State vs. Georgetown...
      3. Oklahoma State vs. Minnesota...
      4. Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M...
      5. Oklahoma State vs. Wichita State - Date: Dec. 8, 2019 (Venue: Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater)
      What to know: This is one of the most underrated ongoing nonconference series. I love it. Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t a resume-padder, either. Wichita State should be pretty solid this season. I like this as an early-season tilt to test the waters and see where OSU stands. With this game sandwiched between Georgetown and Houston (then Minnesota) on the schedule, it’s a chance to notch a quality win that would age really well as the season wears on."

        Maybe if you buy game by game. The non-conference package is basically half the cost of season tickets when factoring in the required SASO. So basically the same price if you intend to go to every game. I don't see single game prices up yet.

        I was taking a very unscientific view of StubHub.
