The West Virginia men's basketball team kicks off Big 12 conference play this afternoon against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, under new head coach Brad Underwood. Underwood coached under Bob Huggins at Kansas State, but the two coaches have never faced off head-to-head. (The 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball tournament was cancelled due to the war.)
The Mountaineers have been stuck in the non-conference boredom quagmire since beating the Virginia Cavaliers on December 3rd. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have been battling it out against strong major and mid-major teams. If West Virginia comes out and tries to run through the motions like we've seen over the last couple games, the Mountaineers could be on upset alert.
Television coverage for today's basketball game is being provided by ESPN2 (live stream on WatchESPN) beginning at 4:00 pm ET.
