West Virginia basketball coach John Beilein has high praise for the Horns. From the West Virginia athletics site:
"This is as good a team on film that I've seen," Beilein said. "Over the long run if they have the chemistry and they stay injury free how far can they go? You don't know - it's the bounce of the ball. I've seen a lot of good teams and they rank up with the really, really great teams I've played against in my years as a coach."
