Wheeling Jesuit Cardinals
What is Wheeling Jesuit University? Turns out it’s a fairly selective university in West Virginia that was founded in just the mid-1900s. The Cardinals have 21 varsity sports teams, including basketball.
The team has been pretty good this season against sensible opponents. The Cardinals have won eight of their ten games. This game against West Virginia is listed on their website as an exhibition. I don’t think the Mountaineers see it the same way, or perhaps it is an exhibition for their home fans.
WJU averages about 80 points per game but the three-point shooting has been poor at just 31 percent. Top scorer Haywood Highsmith can hit from out there, though. He’s averaging over 21 points per game on 41 percent from three. Two other Cardinals average at least 16 points per game.
West Va. hasn’t lost since its first game of the season, in Germany, against Texas A&M. The Mountaineers have wins over Mizzou, Virginia and at Pittsburgh since then.
Jevon Carter is Bob Huggins’ best player, senior leader and most important player this season. He is averaging over 19 a game, shooting nearly 90 percent from the line and over 43 percent from downtown. Daxter Miles Jr. is impressive, too, but he’s an unorthodox kind of guard in today’s game. He gets over 14 points a game but doesn’t shoot threes. When he does, he makes them less than 20 percent of the time.
But in typical Huggins fashion, there are bodies up and down this roster that can play. This is a team built on depth and strength in numbers. Once it adds Esa Ahmad, who is suspended for the first semester due to academic issues, WVU has the chance to shape into a Final Four contender.
