Former Mountaineer Calls West Virginia a “Basketball School”

Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia basketball legend Truck Bryant, who averaged 19.4 points, 3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game as a senior for the Mountaineers, is one of the all-time outstanding human beings in the basketball program’s history and has gone on to have a remarkable professional career overseas over the past decade since leaving West Virginia University.

Bryant, host of “The Truck Bryant Show”, one of the top basketball podcasts in the United States (reaching #7 in the overall US basketball podcast rankings), has also made a major name for himself as a personality on Instagram Live, where he has had guests like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Hassan Whiteside, among many, many other NBA and international basketball stars.

Truck posted a particularly eye-opening comment on social media tonight, referring to West Virginia University as a “basketball school.”  While West Virginia has probably been seen as a football school in the past, it’s difficult to argue with his assessment that WVU is now officially a basketball school.

Since Bob Huggins has arrived in Morgantown 13 seasons ago, the Mountaineers’ record has been 289-158 (.647 winning percentage) and has made the NCAA Tournament ten times with five Sweet 16 and one Final Four appearance.

What do you think?  Is Truck Bryant correct?  Is West Virginia University now officially a basketball school?
