West Virginia’s Comeback
West Virginia had a massive comeback in their win against Texas and shows the foundation of the program under Bob Huggins. Further, this is a program that is built around grit and toughness and that was on full display Saturday. Additionally, the ability of Miles McBride to be their go guy when everything breaks down will be crucial in the NCAA Tournament. Having a big in Derek Culver who can be a focal point of the offense and be a great presence on defense and on the boards is important as well. The marksmanship of Sean McNeil will be massive as these games get tighter. Now, the most important factor for West Virginia will be Taz Sherman who can make plays like McBride as that dominant go-to guy when needed. The additional frontcourt of Emmitt Matthews and Jalen Bridges will be important especially when foul trouble occurs for Derek Culver. West Virginia is capable of delivering on both ends to make an NCAA Tournament run.
