The WVU basketball team has faced some of the best teams in the country this season. Now, they get one more of the best in the Sweet 16.

On Friday, the Mountaineers and Wildcats face off for the 43rd time in history. Not much has changed since the WVU basketball team and Villanova last faced each other in 2012. They are still both loaded with talent and led by two of the best basketball minds in the country.

The Mountaineers have made a name for themselves as a swarming defensive squad while the Wildcats play a fast brand of basketball and can score at will. Both teams feature individual stars and their depth makes any rotation and easy one.

The Wildcats have three top players to watch out for when playing the WVU basketball team and here is a look at what they all have to offer on Friday.
