Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers moved to 8-2 this season with an impressive 81-70 victory over the UAB Blazers (7-2) on Saturday and now the Mountaineers are starting to get some respect nationally!

In the latest CBS Sports College Basketball Rankings, the Mountaineers actually made the Top 25! West Virginia came in ranked at #25 this week.

CBS Sports had the following to say about West Virginia’s last game: “Emmitt Matthews finished with 16 points and nine rebounds in Saturday’s 81-70 win over UAB. The Mountaineers’ next game is Dec. 18 against Buffalo.”

West Virginia has not been ranked in the Top 25 for a couple of years so getting some national recognition, even this early in the season, is huge for the program!
