    Mounties 2nd in Big East!

    With the win over S. Florida today, WVU(14-4, 4-2) sits in a 2nd place tie in the Big East with Cincinnati (9-9) and DePaul (8-9). Whodathunkit? There are however, quite a few quality teams right behind us at 3-2. The Mounties did it with an outstanding team performance in a must win road game without Joe Alexander. They gave up a few lay ups at the beginning of the game and USF's first 12 points in the second half came on uncontested lay ups, but finished both halves with excellent defense and the 2nd half especially with near perfect offensive sets. They used a near flawless offensive and defensive run in the 2nd half to take an 11 point lead and were able to extend it at the end with excellent free throw shooting. Butler had another huge game with a double-double. And Jarrett Brown saw his first action of the year with a couple uneventful minutes in the first half.

    I find it quite encouraging getting a Big East road win in truly convincing fashion. They simply are very hard to come by and will prove to be very important both for seeding in Big East tournament and in improving our chances for NCAA. I am not saying that South Florida is a Big East Giant, they aren't, however they still do well in their house and we got a big win going away. As Ole JB said in the previous post it is nice to see us pull away after being knotted up at the half. Anyway, we have some big ones this week. Not the least of which is a Hoya visit to Morgantown. I will do my best to secure that victory.
