This game worries me - I want a win here so bad! I think it will be one of our tougher matches in the BEast. One game at a time - so let's get a win here!
The consensus seems to be that West Virginia will be a desperate/hungry team, and that it may be tough for us to overcome. For me it seems like WVA is in the same position we were for our home opener against Syracuse last year. We were coming off a beat down on the road in our opener (Providence). The thought was that we wouldn't start 0-2 by losing to Syracuse. We did lose to Syracuse, then got it going after that.
We're the Syracuse in this scenario. However we're much better than last year's Syracuse team. West Virginia is good, but not as good as our team was last year IMO. I think it will be a 10 point win for us, maybe a bit more. We haven't had a stinker since Chaminade. I don't expect one tomorrow. If we don't play well, we lose. Otherwise it will be an impressive "W" in the standings.
