  • Match-up preview:

West Virginia and UConn rekindle an old league rivalry when the Huskies make their first trip to Morgantown in a decade. So as history would have it, the thousands of Mountaineer fans will be rabid when they face off against one of their old Big East foes — but the team itself has its own motivation to best UConn.

The Huskies will be the first ranked opponent welcomed by West Virginia in the WVU Coliseum this season. They’ve already faced some strong opponents in the first half of the season, earning a win over ranked Auburn and narrowly falling to ranked Michigan State.

WVU will look to prove its worth against UConn, which Huggins says has some of the best athletes in the country. The Mountaineers will need to get their offense going, though, as they’ve only gotten consistent scoring from guard Taz Sherman. Their only other double-digit scorer, Sean McNeil, could be out for the second game in a row as he sits day-to-day with a lower back injury.
