Mountaineer Madness

Gear up for the NCAA Tournament with the best game day accessories.

Tournament time is here, and WVU fans are packing their bags for both the men’s and women’s NCAA Basketball Championship. Whether you are cheering from Buffalo, College Park, or your couch in Morgantown, game day accessories are essential to any Mountaineer victory.

The Dooney & Bourke Collegiate Collection for West Virginia University features team colors in an array of handbags and small leather goods. Whether you are a current student or an alum, the perfect bag is a click away. The entire collection can be purchased at dooney.com.

Finding a wristlet that can hold all those game day necessities with school spirit can be a challenge; luckily, Dooney & Bourke has made it easy. The Large Slim Wristlet ($88) is made of coated canvas and trimmed with bridle leather, with just enough room to carry your cards, cash, and keys. 

If you need a little more space, try the Triple Zip Crossbody ($128). Made of the same durable materials, this Dooney & Bourke bag is perfect for hopping around the Coliseum or to your friend’s house for the game. 

Little Earth Productions, a Pittsburgh-based company, has a wide variety of Mountaineer gear to choose from on game day. View the entire WVU collection at fantopiashop.com

“College basketball fans wait all season long for March Madness,” said Rob Brandegee, CEO of Little Earth. “It’s that time when they show off their school pride like no other, and they want to do so on more than just game day. Our items allow fans to represent their teams in a fashionable way, but they have some edge and uniqueness to them.”

Little Earth helps fans avoid those long security lines with the Clear Waist Pack ($24.99). The bag can be worn as either a crossbody or around the waist, and the stylish chain has lobster claw clasps for quick and easy adjustment. 

If you are traveling across the country to see the Mountaineers play, it is important to be prepared for all the elements. No matter the weather, the Jersey Scarf ($24.99) will keep you cozy and fashionable on game day. It also features a small pocket that can hold tickets, IDs, or cash, making it perfect for any sporting event.
