All-time WVU Basketball Team

All-time WVU Basketball Team

The following list is the most comprehensive, definitive inventory of all-time great WVU basketball players ever created.  All-time great lists of any kind should be debated, but a list that features players from very different eras should provoke disagreement in particular.  There will be glaring omissions, obvious additions based on my own biases, and you’re welcome to make your feelings known in the comments below. With that said, here is your all-time West Virginia basketball team with reserves and honorable mentions:
