What Should Be Done About The WVU Men’s Basketball Team Going Forward?

MORGANTOWN, WV—-There’s a lot of concern going around about the current state of the West Virginia Men’s basketball team. Currently the Mountaineers are 8-17 overall and 0-6 on the road and 3-9 in the Big 12 Conference. 

Here are the remaining  six games this season:

UCF at WVU Feb. 20

WVU at Iowa State – Feb. 24

WVU at Kansas State – Feb. 26

Texas Tech at WVU – March 2

TCU at WVU – March 6

WVU at Cincinnati – March 9

Can WVU win all these games and finish 9-9 in the Conference? Currently they are tied with Oklahoma State at 14th place 3-9 (last).

All cannot be blamed on interim coach Josh Eilert and his staff. Eilert was handed the team in a bad situation after Hall Of Fame Coach Bob Huggins was no longer in charge. He did not have all of the players he was handed due to the NCAA decisions and injuries well into the season.

At what point will Athletic Director Wren Baker make a decision to keep Eilert as head coach for another season or let him go? In all fairness Eilert should be given another chance but who knows what decision will be made. If another head coach would be hired, they would have to be able to recruit rather quickly to get the program back to respectability. Eilert is capable of recruiting given the chance under better circumstances.
