This conference saw an increase in talent last season and many of the kids have returned for this upcoming season.  While the conference is lacking in the big man department, there are a lot of guards and sharpshooters that have potential to be great small college players.  It will be great to watch some more of this conferences games this season.

Isaac McKneely Isaac McKneely 6'4" | SG Poca | 2022 State #54 Nation WV (2022) | 6-3 SG | Poca 

Last seasons Maxpreps West Virginia basketball player of the year returns for one last season with the Dots and looks to propel the team to championship status.  Isaac is a great shooter, distributer, and ball handler.  He is currently committed to Virginia and sits atop our West Virginia class of 2022 players rankings list.  

Kolton Painter Kolton Painter 6'0" | CG Nitro | 2022 State WV (2022) | 6-1 PG | Nitro

One of the best scorers in the entire conference averaging over 15 PPG last season and led Nitro to a solid record of 16-4.  Kolton has a lot of room to improve his shooting percentages as he shot less than 25% from three last year and only 32% from the field.  If he can improve his efficiency he could average nearly 20 PPG this season.
