WVU Basketball Hoping for Big Things in Second Big 12 Season

West Virginia’s men’s team is coming off of a season last year where they only won 13 games. It was the worst season in a decade for the program, and one of Coach Bob Huggins’ worst as a head coach.

One problem the team endured  was an exhaustive travel schedule, traveling  more than 30,000 air miles, since many of the Big 12 schools are in Texas. Huggins says an adjusted travel schedule this year, which allows for the team to stay in that state for two games instead of flying back and forth, has helped.

West Virginia’s women’s team is performing better than last year. Last year, they finished with 17 wins and 14 losses. This year, the women’s team is red hot, as they have won 13 games in a row.
