Mount St. Mary's @ West Virginia
What to Know
The West Virginia Mountaineers and the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers will face off at 7 p.m. ET November 7th at WVU Coliseum to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for West Virginia (16-17), so the squad is looking forward to a new start. Mount St. Mary's struggled last season, too, ending up 14-16.
A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: West Virginia could only manage to knock down 41.30% of their shots, making them 34th worst (bottom 90%) in college basketball in field goal percentage. Mount St. Mary's experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked 47th worst with respect to points per game last year, where the team accrued only 66.1 on average (bottom 87%). It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
West Virginia has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
