PLAYERS TO WATCH
- Trae Young: This one is a no brainer. The freshman guard has been incredible for the Sooners this season, averaging 29 points and 10 assists per game. If the Mountaineers want to win this one, we have to have a way to stop him. Which brings me to...
- Jevon Carter: Carter has had two not-so-great games in a row, and has been playing with a wrist injury.
HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE (ON A SCALE OF 1-10)?
Ten. Tre Young is no joke, and this game terrifies me. Luckily this one is in our house, and the Mountaineer faithful should be raucous.
PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
Teddy Buckets hits a jumper at the buzzer to keep the Mountaineers undefeated on US soil, and places a huge target on their backs in the Big 12 Conference race.
