PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
Scheduling this game on short notice after having to cancel the Robert Morris game was a nice play by West Virginia. This should serve as an opportunity to get some of the new guys a chance to get on the floor and hopefully watch a few shots fall. I’d expect to see increased minutes from Jalen Bridges and Isaiah Cottrell as West Virginia dominates this game.
West Virginia 78, North Texas 61
