Why West Virginians love West Virginia basketball
Posted On June 7, 2021
West Virginia has been named the top college basketball state for the third consecutive year by USA Today.
The publication says the Mountaineers are the best basketball program in the nation and ranked fourth in the West.
West Virginia’s men’s basketball team is led by three-time Final Four MVP and MVP candidate James Blackmon.
Blackmon is the most decorated player in WVU history and the only player to have been named a finalist for four different national awards.
The Mountaineer women’s basketball squad also includes four-time All-American and Final Four selection Lillian Smith, who is also a two-time NCAA champion.
The USA Today ranking of the top 100 schools in the country will be released in March.
