West Virginia wins, sings Brian McKnight songs

West Virginia 68, Missouri 59

West Virginia fought off a late Missouri rally to advance to the Sweet 16 for the fifth time in school history.  Missouri's Zaire Taylor hit a three pointer with just over four minutes left to cut the Mountaineers' lead to three but that is as close as Mizzou would get.  West Virginia advances to play eleven seeded Washington on Thursday.

Da'Sean Butler led the way.

Da'Sean Butler scored 28 points including 19 of West Virginia's 30 first half points.  Butler also grabbed 8 boards in the win.  Kevin Jones added 13 points and 9 rebounds.

West Virginia fans didn't throw anything.

That's always good.

I miss Kevin Pittsnogle.

Remember him?  Of course you do.  I wonder where he is now.  Last I heard, he was waived from the Albuquerque Thunderbirds.  Now, he's probably draining three pointers from the top of the key in the Martinsburg YMCA.

There isn't a whole lot to do in Buffalo.

The Mountaineers did a lot of team building exercises in the hotel room during down time.  And by team building exercises, I mean recording videos that they probably didn't want to go viral.

Haha! Those guys look fun to hang around with. They probably have some cabin fever from not being allowed to leave their room. Kids being kids.

It's great to see the guys still having fun as the tourney unfolds.

And this was the night before the Mizzou game.

Good luck men and bring home the trophy to our beloved state!
