West Virginia Players Strike Back at Negative Fans Following Loss

Morgantown, West Virginia – Following West Virginia’s 85-59 loss at Kansas today, several fans of the Mountaineers took to social media to express their disappointment in the team’s effort, particularly in the second half of the game.

Senior Taz Sherman, who had his worst game of the season by far, finishing with 5 points on 1-9 from the field and 0-5 from three point range, was the first to comment on the fans’ opinions, saying the following: “They love you when you up but shame you when you down. Y’all opinions on this app are worthless to me. Long season.”

Jalen Bridges, who had 12 points on 3-11 from the field and 11 rebounds in today’s loss, had the following to say of the fans’ reactions: “Y’all crazy in these comments, stay on that side please and thank you!”

Bridges added: “Tough one, big opportunity Tuesday tho!”

The opportunity that Bridges is referring to is when the Mountaineers welcome the #1 ranked Baylor Bears to the WVU Coliseum on Wednesday at 5:00PM.

Although West Virginia collapsed in the second half of today’s game, they played a very competitive first half against one of the most talented teams in the nation on perhaps the most difficult court in college basketball to win on. A win on Tuesday against Baylor would quickly erase the negative feeling of today’s game immediately.
