Big 12 Adjusts Men's Basketball Schedule For WVU
September 12, 2013
Wendell Barnhouse is a nationally-known and respected columnist who has spent over 20 years covering collegiate athletics. He has reported from 25 Final Fours and more than three dozen bowl games and has written about the Big 12 and its schools since the conference's beginning. Barnhouse will be updating the Big 12 Insider on happenings and behind-the-scenes information about the conference.

Andy Katz of in his regular Three Point Shot feature talks about the men’s basketball scheduling adjustment made by the Big 12 for West Virginia:

West Virginia is only the third Big 12 team to open up with two straight road games in the history of the conference. But the Mountaineers wanted to do it - by choice. West Virginia wanted to play early road games to avoid more missed class time later in the season. The first two road games are at TCU and Texas Tech on Jan. 4 and 6. West Virginia has one other two-game road trip at Oklahoma State and at Baylor on Jan. 25-28. Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas have two sets of back-to-back road games in the conference while Kansas State, TCU and Texas Tech have three. Kansas has one - at Texas and at Baylor. So, too, does Iowa State - at Kansas State and at Baylor. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins discussed the Big 12 and the scheduling format for year two on the ESPNU college basketball podcast. (Huggins comes on at the 20-minute mark.)
