The West Virginia Mountaineers got a little bit of a break in their NCAA Tournament selection as they will only have to travel a short distance for their second round game (their first) against the Bulldogs of Gonzaga on Thursday. While Gonzaga has to travel most of the way across the Country, West Virginia just has to hop on a bus and drive about 90 minutes. It should also help them with the crowd, and it is assumed that they will have a pretty significant home court advantage.
Here is all the TV information for the game:
Game date/time: Thursday, March 15, approximately 7:20 p.m. ET
Location: CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA.
Announcers: Kevin Harlan / Len Elmore / Reggie Miller / Marty Snider
