The West Virginia athletic department announced the Mountaineers will leave a day early -- on Tuesday, rather than Wednesday -- to avoid wind-driven snow and sleet the National Weather Service is forecasting for New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, parts of eastern Pennsylvania and Massachusetts by Thursday.
It's a quick turnaround for West Virginia which, after taking out Marshall in the second round on Sunday at Viejas Arena in San Diego, California, arrived back in Morgantown on Monday.
The fifth-seeded Mountaineers will meet No. 1 seed Villanova in the East Regional semifinals on Friday at 7:27 p.m. ET at TD Garden.
