The WVU women's basketball team jumps from one highly-competitive conference, and should be able to keep its head above water once in the Big 12. They've been to the NCAA Tounrament 8 times in their history, including 5 of the past 6 years- this year they were eliminated in the second round by eventual champ Baylor. Current coach Mike Carey will be in his 12th year at the helm next season, and has only registered one non-winning season in his time in Morgantown.
The Mountaineers have had a smattering of success in a few other lower-profile sports, but the only other oddity is that they will be the only school in the Big 12 that offers men's soccer. Because of this, their soccer team will be a part of the MAC starting next year.
