HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE (ON A SCALE OF 1-10)?

Seven. I feel a lot better about this game now than I did a week ago, but that’s not to say the Red Raiders aren’t a dangerous team. I just feel good about where the Mountaineers are at, especially after they way they handled Baylor and Iowa State.

PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG

Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles Jr. combine forces once again to power the Mountaineers over the Red Raiders, clinching the No. 2 seed in the Big 12 Conference tournament.

West Virginia 75 , Texas Tech 67
