The Mountaineers traveled to Kansas City, MO with hopes to compete for the Big 12 Championship — but hours before they were set to take the court, the sports world ground to a halt in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this week’s edition of The Bob Huggins Show, Nick Farrell, Anjelica Trinone and Tony Caridi have you covered on what happened in Kansas City prior to the cancellation.
Nick and Anjelica provide information regarding the future of WVU sports during the coronavirus pandemic. Nick and Anjelica take a look back at WVU upsetting then-No. 4 Baylor on senior day, and the perfect send-off for seniors Logan Routt, Chase Harler and Jermaine Haley. Dale Wolfley also gives his weekly Panhandle Cleaning & Restoration Big Action of the Week.
Tony sits down with WVU Athletic Director Shane Lyons in Kansas City to discuss the cancellation of the Big 12 men’s and women’s basketball tournaments. Lyons gives insight on the future of WVU sports for the month of March.
ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla joins the program for the third time this season prior to the cancellation of the Big 12 Tournament. Fraschilla talks about the change in the Mountaineer team that led to a 12-point victory over the No. 4 Bears. Fraschilla also speaks highly of freshman Oscar Tshiebwe, and how he has met his expectations as a young player.
Defense is essential to getting that win, and Junior Gabe Osabuohien describes playing defense as an ‘art’. In this week’s Life of a Mountaineer presented by WVU Athletics, Osabuonhein describes how playing defense makes him the player he is today.
