Has West Virginia University ever won a Basketball National Championship?

No. They played in the National Championship once, I think in 1959 vs. California and lost by one point. Actually, WVU won the NIT in 1942. At the time, the NCAA was only 3 years old and the NIT was considered the more prestigious of the two events. Early in the life of the NCAA tournament, teams would turn down invites in favor of the NIT. So while the 1942 team was not the NCAA champion, they were in fact national champions.

What is the only college basketball team to win both the NIT and NCAA championships in the same year?

The National Invitation Tournament (NIT) began in 1938 and the NCAA Tournament debuted the following year. The NIT field expanded quickly and became the premier tournament during the 1940's; so much so that the NCAA scheduled their tournament after the NIT to avoid directly competing with it. This allowed teams to compete in both tournaments, with City College of New York being the first and only school to win both titles in the same year (1950). The rules were subsequently changed so a team would only qualify for one or the other.
