"For us to play both NCAA Division I institutions in the state of West Virginia will be a great experience," Osborne said. "I look at it as a treat and a challenge. Marshall has a new staff and of lot of excitement in Huntington. WVU will be a top-20 team and going into maybe the best women's conference in the Big 12. I know expectations are high in Morgantown."
