The Mountaineers are legit, there's no question about it, and now it finally seems Bob Huggins and West Virginia are getting the recognition they deserve.
Texas Tech guard Zhaire Smith (2) battles for a rebound during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Florida Atlantic on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, in Lubbock, Texas.
A video of the court storming recorded by a fan in the upper deck of the arena appeared to show a West Virginia player throwing a punch at a fan passing by, prompting his teammates to restrain him near the Mountaineers bench. Davenport led the way with the best statistical game of her WVU career, dropping 32 points and 9 rebounds, while Muldrow added 20 points of her own to go with a career-high 17 rebounds. He was 5-of-6 from the floor as the Red Raider shot 5o percent overall and 58-percent after halftime. "And in today's game that's all there is". Thomas Welsh scored 20 points - two off his career best - to lead the Bruins (13-5, 4-2), who were only 8 of 18 at the free-throw line.

An in-your-space squad that feeds off turnovers forced only three in the second-half when Huggins tried 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones. "Starting Senior Forward Zach Smith (6'8" 220-lbs) did not play against the Sooners due to an injury and is still day to day. "I mean, those are the guys that we play".
One of those miscues was foul trouble.
No. 12 Kansas 73, Kansas State 72: Devonte Graham had 23 points, and Malik Newman hit the go-ahead foul shots with 15 seconds left for Kansas (14-3, 4-1 Big 12).
Combine that with Jevon Carter going off for 28 points, and West Virginia as a team making 11 three-pointers, more likely than not the team is going to win the game. "We've got to stay humble, man".
But while TCU followed the home loss to the Mountaineers with two more losses to Kansas and Oklahoma, they rebounded in a big way. The 15-1 WVU Mountaineers are undefeated on USA soil and are now number two in the country; their highest ranking in 60 years.
From there, Harris would tie the game at 60 with his first three-pointer and field goal of the game.
The Mountaineers again missed an opportunity to put Texas Tech away while leading 55-50 with under eight minutes left.
Ahmad's 34 minutes were the second-most on either team (behind Carter's 39). King played over 30 minutes in each of the last two games, and on Wednesday pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds. But Huggins also said he's not certain Ahmad will immediately be in good game shape. Beard said both players are being evaluated on a day-to-day basis. "We've got great, great guys ... but we're all in this together, and if you think you're not in this with us, then go do something else".
But at least West Virginia (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) can take comfort in having one of its top assets back in the lineup.
