WVU Basketball To Raise Final Four Banner Friday

Tonight at 6:30, the WVU men's basketball team will raise Big East and Final Four banners at the Coliseum. The event is free. The women's team will also raise an NCAA Tournament banner. There will be two hours of autograph signings, followed by a slam-dunk competition for the men's team, and a three-point shooting competition for the women's team.

From the same article, men's coach Bob Huggins notes that the team will play a little differently this year, as frontcourt players Kevin Jones, John Flowers, Deniz Kilicli and Danny Jennings take more prominent roles:

"I think it'll be a little more conventional," Huggins said. "A year ago we had size, but it was overall size. We didn't have anybody with big size, but we had good overall size. I think this year, with Danny and Deniz, we have two big, strong guys inside. We struggled sometimes a year ago with big, strong guys inside because our strength was outside and our overall size allowed us to switch everything and guard everybody."

Huggins notes that the Mountaineers will rely more heavily on guards Casey Mitchell and Dalton Pepper as well.
