Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, the Big 12 Conference released its annual preseason awards and the West Virginia Mountaineers again are shown incredible disrespect.

Oscar Tshiebwe, West Virginia’s sensational sophomore forward, has been named to the Big 12 Preseason First Team.


However, the Mountaineers, who return almost all of their key players from last season and are loaded with depth, are predicted to finish 4th in the Conference.  This, of course, is a joke.  West Virginia will not only compete for the conference championship this season, they will also be a national championship contender.
