WVU – TCU Mens Basketball Game Rescheduled

West Virginia’s men’s basketball game at TCU, originally scheduled for Monday, Jan. 3, has been reset for seven weeks later, and will now take place on Monday, Feb. 21 at the Horned Frogs’ Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth. The contest is slated to be shown on ESPN+ at 8:00 p.m. ET.

The game was originally set to be part of a two-game road swing that would open the Big 12 season for the Mountaineers, but was postponed when TCU had too many players in Covid protocols to meet Big 12 minimums, which require at least seven available players.

The WVU -TCU game has now been inserted two days before the Mountaineers’ road contest at Iowa State on Wed., Feb 23. That swing to ISU was originally set to be just a one-game WVU trip, but now Bob Huggins’ team will play two games in three days on that jaunt.

The one positive is that the rescheduled game will not add another round trip to the midwest for WVU, which is always a concern. The new game date does, though, give the Mountaineers four games in eight days, with the TCU – ISU double bookended by home games against Kansas (Saturday, Feb. 19) and Texas (Saturday, Feb. 26).

Neither the Big 12 nor any other major conference built open dates or gaps into their league schedules for potential Covid cancellations this year, thus there will be a number of crowded schedules for those schools that were forced to postpone games.

    That’s going to be a tiring road trip. If these guys could collect airline miles after playing at WVU you should be able to fly around the world 3 or 4 times flying first class after you graduate

    Playing 4 basketball games in 8 days is a cakewalk compared to people like my father working in the coal mines day after day, endangering their lives in that hellhole to feed, cloth, shelter and educate their children. Piece of cake by comparison! Besides, they’re Mountaineers. We’re a tough breed. I think WVU’s 4 opponents should be worried more.
