Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers do not have another game scheduled until Saturday, February 20th when they travel to play the Texas Longhorns.

The North Carolina Tarheels posted on their social media accounts today that they are looking for a game from February 16th-18th.

Although the Tarheels, currently 12-7 overall and 7-5 in the ACC, are not the typical North Carolina team, they would be a big-time marquee matchup for a West Virginia team that is also searching for an opponent to play.

In addition, this would be a quality win on the road for the Mountaineers and would allow them to continue playing and not be forced to take an entire week off.

Head coach Bob Huggins recently said the following about the layoff: “We took one day off from practice and we were terrible.  I can’t imagine how we’d play if we took a whole week off.  We want to play and we need to play.”

Let’s make it happen, WVU!
