CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia may have won the National Invitation Tournament, but the Mountaineers' commemorative T-shirts are less than championship material.

They contain a misspelling.

The "West Virginia" printed on the shirts players wore after winning the NIT title with a 78-73 victory over Clemson on Thursday night is missing the last "i" in "Virginia."

WVU sports information director Shelly Poe said the NIT printed the shirts.

Calls to tournament officials were not immediately returned Friday.

West Virginia coach John Beilein also could not be reached for comment. He and the team were on their way back to West Virginia on Friday after winning their first NIT title in 65 years.

"If you don't have three I's, you aren't from West Virginia."

Those will probably be hot sellers on e-bay before too long. . .joining the ranks of other famous boo-boos like the Billy Ripken Fleer baseball card ( with the obscenity displayed at the bottom of the bat handle )

WVU photoshopped the photo (to correct the spelling) they put up on their website:

I can already see all the NT jokes next year. Where's the 'I'? We had to give it to West Virginia.
