What I Think About Being Oklahoma State Champs

Oklahoman-USA TODAY Sports For the first time since joining the Big 12 and the first time in school history, the West Virginia Mountaineers can lay claim to being Oklahoma State champions, by virtue of beating both the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the same year, ending a 9-year losing streak to the Sooners (2012-2021, 2020 void) and a 7-year losing streak to the Cowboys (2015-2021). The win means the Mountaineers finish 5-7. It means a bowl game is most likely out of the cards. It means this season is over. So let’s discuss this game, this...

SOUND OFF: West Virginia comes up short against No. 24 Purdue in PK85 quarterfinal

Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports After getting off to a 4-0 start to the season, the West Virginia Mountaineers came up short in their first real test of the season — an 80-68 loss to the No. 24 ranked Purdue Boilermakers in a PK85 tournament quarterfinal. The game felt a lot closer than the score indicates, largely thanks to the level of effort the Mountaineers showed — even after starting the game down 9-0 early. Erik Stevenson led the way for the Mountaineers with 17 points. Joe Toussaint finished with 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Kedrian Johnson chipped...
