Other than the late 1950s teams of Jerry West and such other greats, the senior squad of 2001-2005 was one of the greatest teams of the school's history, mainly in the 2005-2006 campaign.

Kevin Pittsnogle started at center, though he led the team with three-point shots. Senior Patrick Beilein (former coach John Beilein's son) got considerable playing time as well. The senior class was led by team MVPs Gansey and Pittsnogle, who were both named to the All-Big East team. The team advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament before losing to Texas 74-71 due to a game-winning three-point shot at the buzzer. This loss marked the end of an era. It consisted of back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances, the first since the 1959 and 1960 teams of Jerry West, and an overall record of 77-51.

2007 NIT Championship

The team that followed the 2001-2005 senior class was projected to be weak and undeveloped due to lack of experience. Frank Young was the only senior that got considerable playing time from the previous year, although center Rob Summers was a senior as well. Young started at forward, along with Da'Sean Butler, Wellington Smith, and Joe Alexander who all shared time. The guard position consisted of starter Darris Nichols and Alex Ruoff, although Ted Talkington got small action in a few games. Jamie Smalligan and senior Rob Summers split time at center as well. The only definite starts on the team were senior Frank Young and junior Darris Nichols, although all other players shared fairly equal time, including guard Da'Sean Butler off the bench.

After a loss to Arkansas, they posted an 8-0 record to make their season record 13-1 before suffering two losses to Notre Dame and Marquette to make their record 13-3. After a win against USF and an overtime loss at Cincinnati, the Mountaineers won four games to make their record 18-4. They were beaten by 13 at home to nationally ranked Pitt, followed by one of the biggest upsets in school history. The upset of #2 UCLA 70-65 made the Mountaineers 19-5, although they lost to Georgetown Hoyas the next week to make their record 19-6.
