UConn Huskies vs. West Virginia Mountaineers GameThread

The one-seed Syracuse Orange will know who their Thursday opponent is after the Connecticut Huskies and West Virginia Mountaineers settle their differences for the final time Wednesday afternoon.

The Huskies dispatched the DePaul Blue Demons 81-67 in the first round of the Big East Tournament. The 9-seed now continues their run against the 8-seed 'Eers. And if you want to get technical, UConn has won six BET games in a row.

UConn beat WVU 64-57 back in early January behind 25 points from Jeremy Lamb and 20 points from Andre Drummond.

Clearly you want to see West Virginia win his game. UConn poses the ever-dangerous third game in one season, especially after Syracuse beat them twice already. I know there's some stats out there that prove or disprove how hard it is to beat a team three times in a season but let's just assume it's hard. Besides, we all remember 2010 when Georgetown proved it to be true.

Either way, the Orange will get a good game. And either way, Syracuse should win, so whoever wants some, come get some.
