Tonight sees a Big 12 showdown between two of the most banged up teams in the conference.
West Virginia will be without 4 of their 6 leading scorers, while the Horned Frogs have been without talented guard Jaylen Fisher since late December.
Luckily for TCU, they boast a much more well-rounded roster than the Mountaineers, riding their depth to an impressive 18-9 record while the Mountaineers have managed an abysmal 10 wins in their 27 games this season.
West Virginia Mountaineers
This year has been a disaster for the Mountaineers as they will finish the season under .500 for just the second time since Bob Huggins took over in 2007.
The main reason for the Mountaineers lack of success has been the loss of reigning DPOY Jevon Carter, who graduated last season. and Sogaba Konate, who has missed all but 8 games this season and was a DPOY candidate last season.
While Konate is the most notable injury that has plagued the Mountaineers season, they will also find themselves without starters Esa Ahmad, James Bolden, and Wesley Harris.
While the Mountaineers have been able to gut out a few upset wins at home this season, beating this TCU team will be very difficult to pull off with four of their top six scorers out the lineup.
TCU Horned Frogs
The Mountaineers aren’t the only team in the Big 12 to have caught the injury bug this season. TCU has had a few injury problems of their own, though they will be much healthier in this matchup than they’ve been at different points this season.
The Horned Frogs suffered a major blow in December when starting guard Jaylen Fisher, the glue to this TCU offense, fell victim to a knee injury that has cost him his season.
The Horned Frogs suffered an embarrassing road loss against Big 12 basement dweller Oklahoma State in their last road contest. They were without Kouat Noi, who has put together a stellar season, averaging 15.1 PPG and 5 rebounds per game.
With Noi back in the lineup, the Horned Frogs beat a tough Iowa State team at home in their last contest.
The Horned Frogs should have plenty of scoring options with Noi back. I expect them to overpower the banged-up Mountaineers in this one.

Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. TCU Horned Frogs NCAAB Prediction:
The Mountaineers took an absolute beating at the hands of the Horned Frogs on the road in mid-January, losing 98-67. I think we see the Mountaineers put up more of a fight at home in this one, but I don’t believe they keep the final score within single digits.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: TCU -3
While the Mountaineers will be looking to feed off of the home crowd and keep this one close, they simply lack the talent and depth to prevent this TCU team from pulling away at some point in this one. I’m backing TCU by 10+.
