Scoop & Score starts at 9 a.m. and I need not tell you what we’ll be talking about today. Randy McClure from Rush the Court will be with me to preview the tournament. I’ll cover some conspiracy theories and how to literally grow the game and then we’ll put a ribbon on WVU’s season. Listen live!

(Update: Podcast! This was fun.)

Speaking of, when the end arrived Tuesday night and we sought some answers, we got some answers about how WVU went from 14-9 to 17-16. One more or less proves the Mountaineers were not ready to be better than what they turned out to be.

“I think we stopped listening,” said forward Kevin Noreen. “Coaches question that every day: ‘Are you guys listening?’ That’s probably the main problem. I still think guys listen to the scouting reports. They listen to what’s expected and what to expect in games. But at the end of the day, when Huggs tries to talk to someone one-on-one, sometimes it went in one ear and out the other with a few guys.”

I’ll buy it as an explanation and as the outcome. As Bob Huggins put it, your relationship with the game is a lot like your relationship with your girlfriend. If you don’t pay attention to her, she’s not going to be around very long.

Absolutely unrelated … I’m sure a lot of us are digging in for several consecutive hours of basketball today. We’ll open the post for that and for any other comments. Enjoy!
