'Nova, 'Neers make it to Morgantown


The Villanova and West Virginia basketball teams have now arrived in Morgantown for tomorrow night's Big East showdown, but it was not that easy.

The Wildcats (20-2, 9-1) stayed overnight in Washington, as planned, and left this morning by bus for WVU. They left at 9 and arrived by 2 on roads that were described as manageable. The ride is usually about 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

The Mountaineers (19-3, 8-2) were in New York City, beating St. John's yesterday afternoon, and their charter could not leave to get home because of conditions at the airport. They flew in this afternoon at noon.

The teams meet at 7 p.m. tomorrow on ESPN. Last year, the Wildcats lost in Morgantown by 21. The teams will hook up again in the March 6 finale in South Philly.

Villanova hasn’t lost two back-to-back in close to two years (74 games).

We're sure the West Virginia student section will be on its best behavior. But the musket fire should still be loud.
