West Virginia started off the year on a nice 13-2 run. The Mountaineers would win just one of their next 14 games, though. The good news is that West Virginia is sitting on consecutive wins over TCU and Kansas State right now. 

In the Wednesday tourney game versus Kansas State, the Mountaineers were up 38-34 by halftime. West Virginia posted a 35-33 advantage in the second for a 73-67 win. Tops in scoring was Sean McNeil with 21 points and six boards.

Over on the Kansas side, they were sitting at 22-4 back on February 22 but then lost consecutive games to Baylor and TCU. The Jayhawks have bounced back in their last pair with wins over TCU and Texas to move to 25-6 overall. 

In the Saturday game versus Texas, the Jayhawks kept the pace for the entire game and needed overtime to decide the winner. At the buzzer Kansas ended up with a 70-63 revenge victory. Top scorer David McCormack put up 22 points with 10 rebounds. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Kansas here. The Jayhawks had some trouble with Baylor and TCU recently, but to their credit they’ve bounced back with wins over the last pair. The Bears have been scoring well for most of the season and they’ve got 70 or more points in nine of their last 11 outings. If the Jayhawks can get off to a good start I think they’ll be okay.

As for West Virginia, they’ve had a nice run over the last couple of games. The Mountaineers lost 78-73 the last time these teams met up back on February 14, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them hang around most of the way in this rematch.
