Looks like rebounding might be a little easier tonight, as WVU's Aaric Murray hasn't made the trip with their team. Might also make a difference in terms of foul trouble and fatigue.
WVU's Murray not with the team in NYC
is a really muscular interior presence (that's what she said); thought tonight was going to be a good test.
Agreed. Was hoping for a challenge to help this team grow. I guess we'll have to wait until B1G season to really find out what they're made of.
Already faced Pitt and KSU, which are both just as bruising (if not more so) on the interior as WVU is.

Um........maybe we should wait until after the game before we say that?
I guess we'll see, but this was a game we were supposed to win before they lost their leading rebounder and highest percentage shooter.
all suggested that the challenge for M was going to be in the frontcourt, where they get a lot of offensive rebounds. Look for us to win handily.
Big hit for WVU. Perhaps their only chance tonight was winning on the glass and playing good defense inside. Losing Murray is a big hit towards that goal. For what was already a tough challenge, I think it just got tougher
I'd love to know what the Vegas line did after this news broke
