West Virginia University's Men's Basketball tradition of greatness begins with legends like Jerry West, “Hot Rod” Hundley, Ron Williams, Rod Thorn and Wil Robinson. The tradition has continued with the likes of Kevin Pitsnogle, Mike Gansey, Darris Nichols, Joe Alexander, Da’Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks and Kevin Jones. There is no doubt that West Virginia University basketball has carved a well earned legacy throughout the history of the program.
The Big 12 Conference is recognized as one of the most competitive basketball conferences in the nation. In order to compete for Big 12 championships and national prominence, the Legacy Fund was created to provide support to the WVU men's basketball program.
By supporting the Legacy Fund, you ensure that WVU basketball's proud tradition will continue well into the future. All Legacy Fund members will receive a variety of benefits including an apparel item, opportunities to interact with the coaching staff and invitations to special events. Major gift members will receive all benefits listed above plus special benefits based on availability.
The Legacy Fund will help to offset the two, ever-increasing costs associated with top flight basketball programs; recruiting and team travel. All funds in support of the Legacy Fund will go directly toward ensuring that Head Coach Bob Huggins and his staff have the necessary resources to recruit top-tier basketball student-athletes to WVU. Funds will also help provide chartered air travel throughout the season. Chartered flights allow our student-athletes to compete at the highest level and receive the maximum experience from their education, by allowing them to spend more time in the classroom.
In order to compete for BIG 12 and national prominence, the Basketball Legacy Fund was created to support the WVU men’s and women's basketball programs. The Fund was created to offset two ever-increasing costs associated with top flight basketball programs—recruiting and team travel. All funds in support of Basketball Legacy go directly towards ensuring that coach Huggins, coach Carey and their respective staffs have the necessary resources to recruit blue-chip student-athletes to WVU. Funds also support chartered air travel for each team throughout the season, keeping student-athletes in the classroom and allowing them to miss the least amount of class time. Beginning in 2009, the Mountaineer Athletic Club introduced a new membership level for the Basketball Legacy Fund.
