- The basketball team has an all-time record of 13-3. In 1997, Damian Owens led the team with 24 points, eight rebounds, five assists and eight steals, as West Virginia defeated No. 20 Georgia in Atlanta, 86-81. Greg Jones added 17 points and Brian Lewin put up a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
