Coach Huggins talks to Teddy Allen from the sideline.

The Big 12 released their annual preseason poll on Thursday, and West Virginia was voted as the No. 5 team in the conference.

For the ninth straight season, Kansas sits atop the preseason poll, followed by Baylor and Texas Tech. Texas owns the fourth spot, just ahead of the Mountaineers.

West Virginia’s fifth spot marks the lowest mark the Mountaineers have received in the preseason since 2015, when they were voted No. 6. They went on to finish that season as the second seed in that year’s Big 12 Tournament, losing to Kansas in a thrilling championship game.

The Mountaineers’ season begins Nov. 8 against Akron at home, before tipping their Big 12 slate off at Kansas on Jan. 4.
