ESPN WVU head coach John Beilein was :00 reported today to be the top candidate
to go to Michigan - but his point guard
Darris Nichols - the former Radford
Bobcat - the rest of the Eers were only
focused on Clemson tonight.

West Virginia got out of the
gates quickly and shot the three
pointer well in the first half to take
a 12 point lead into the lockeroom.

Clemson tried to answer in the
second 20 minutes with efforts like
this one from big Trevor Booker, who
gets it done on both ends of the floor

with the block and slam. *CG final West Virginia
78 But Nichols, Frank Young and the Clemson rest of the Mountaineers were just too 73 much as they win the NIT title over
Clemson 78-to-73.

This is WVU's first NIT title in NIT 65 years.

The Mountaineers finished the
season 27 and 9.
