After going 18-9 in the regular season, John Beilein's West Virginia Mountaineers found themselves firmly on the bubble heading into the BIG EAST Tournament. After making a run to the championship game WVU earned the #7 seed in the Albuquerque Regional of the NCAA Tournament.
After surviving #10 Creighton, 63-61, on a Tyrone Sally dunk the Mountaineers faced Chris Paul and the #2 seed Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The game became known as "the greatest college basketball game ever played in Cleveland" WVU outlasted WF in double overtime, thanks in large part to Mike Gansey's 29 point outburst.
The Mountaineers took down #6 seed Louisville in the Sweet 16 before losing by 8 to Louisville in the Elite 8.
"That West Virginia team had incredible acumen for the game. Pound for pound and inch for inch, those five or six guys had the highest basketball IQ I had ever seen."
