West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia took a narrow lead into halftime at the Coliseum this week but Texas Tech found a way to pick up the pace and won the second in a 62–59 win.
The Mountaineers did cover as 4.5-point underdogs but a home loss is no way to begin Big-12 play. Neither team shot well from three-point range. West Virginia’s bench outscored its starters, 48–11. Lamont West had twenty-two, alone.
The Mountaineers have been playing without their towering Malian center, Sagaba Konate, who drew plenty of attention for some of his rejections in the NCAA Tournament a season ago. He’s been out since early December with a knee problem, though he’s been listed as questionable for the last couple games.
West Virginia is a different team with its starting center in the fold but you just hope he comes back in time for it to make a difference. Keep an eye on his status ahead of this game because he’s worth a couple of points.
Texas’ only loss by more than six points this season came against Michigan State. The close losses stand out on its results chart, as does the fact that the Longhorns have only played four games in the last month.
They certainly looked well-rested in a defensive gem in Manhattan against Kansas State. The pace was snail-like it Texas still held the Wildcats to under thirty-three percent from the field in a twenty-point win.
Jase Febres started all season long as a freshman a year ago and the first eleven games of this year. Shaka Smart has utilized him as a sixth man in the last two games, though, and Febres has responded with twelve and then twenty-three against K-State.

Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Prediction: Texas gets a nice win.
Texas Tech is the more highly-ranked team, but Texas may just be the group that puts the most pressure on Kansas this season in the Big-12. I like ’em. Still, it’s rarely easy against WVU. This would be a good win, one that would mean more than the computers may indicate.
