West Virginia and Marshall are prepping this week for the annual Capital Classic in Charleston.

The Mountaineers (2-3) enter this game with very little experience  compared to the last few years.

Gone are Da'Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks, Truck Bryant and Kevin Jones.

The Thundering Herd isn't any different.

Guards Shaq Johnson and Damier Pitts are now gone, but the Herd has a lot of returning players, including DeAndre Kane, Dennis Tinnon and Nigel Spikes.

That experience should help Marshal have upper hand over WVU.
