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

Seven. Texas is going to be playing to get themselves off the bubble. If Mo Bamba actually plays today, and West Virginia comes in thinking this will be easy, the Mountaineers could be in for a surprise.

PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG

West Virginia wins, locking up that No. 2 seed in the Big 12 Tournament.
