West Virginia University's Basketball tradition of greatness begins with legends like Jerry West, Georgeann Wells, “Hot Rod” Hundley, Olivia Bradley, Ron Williams, Rosemary Kosiorek, Rod Thorn and Wil Robinson. The tradition has continued with the likes of Kevin Pitsnogle, Kate Bulger, Meg Bulger, Mike Gansey, Yolanda Paige, Darris Nichols, Olayinka Sanni, 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 and Women's Legacy were created to provide support to WVU's basketball programs.
By supporting the Legacy Funds, you ensure that WVU basketball's proud tradition will continue well into the future. All Legacy Fund and Women's 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 Funds 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. The Women's Legacy Fund will go directly toward ensuring that Head Coach Mike Carey 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.
Please select Basketball-Legacy Fund or Women's Basketball - Women's Legacy Fund from the drop down menu and include your MAC/season ticket account number in the "Comments" section of the online giving page.
