The 1st of 2 marquee Big 12 matchups on Tuesday takes place down in Texas as the Mountaineers and Longhorns battle it out.
These two ranked teams both have the ability to take the Big 12, with West Virginia sitting tied for 1st and Texas just 2 games back.
This will be the 2nd meeting as Texas looks to make it a series sweep after knocking off West Virginia back on 1/20 56-49.
For a team sitting atop one of the best conferences in the nation to score 49 points in a game, the opposing defense had to be really good. That’s exactly what Texas’ defense was in the 56-49 win over the Mountaineers back on 1/20.
West Virginia shot just 31.1% from the field, which is easily the worst performance for a team that averages over 80 points per game.
The Mountaineers do come in off a solid performance as they routed the TCU Horned Frogs 73-42 on Saturday.
Jonathan Holton returned from his 4 game suspension and made an immediate impact on both sides of the floor. In 18 minutes of play, Holton put up 14 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and dished out 5 assists.
The Texas Longhorns may be the most underrated team in the nation.
Texas has played just about every opponent tough, home or away, it hasn’t mattered for this team. Texas comes in off 2 road losses, to #3 Oklahoma and #14 Iowa state, both of which were extremely competitive.
The Sooners hit a 3 point shot with just 1 second to go as Oklahoma knocked off Texas by 3 points. Against the Cyclones, the Longhorns held firm for about 38 minutes, until the Cyclones pulled away. It was still 2 very impressive road performances against 2 of the top teams in the nation.
In the 1/20 meeting at West Virginia, Javan Felix took over and scored the Longhorns final 9 points of the game. The defense was on a different level as they held West Virginia to just 24 points in the 2nd half.

Free CBB Prediction:
Revenge has to be on the mind of the Mountaineers here. They were embarrassed on their home floor and shot a season worst from the field.
However, this Longhorns team tends to play everyone tough and with this being a home game, give the edge to Texas.
Expect the Longhorns to grab a home win here and get back into the Big 12 race.
