PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
Something clicked for the Mountaineers against Richmond, and I think that’s going to carry over into tonight’s game. At the same time, Iowa State seems to be having some real issues of their own, and running up against a top 10 team isn’t really what they need right now.
Rasir Bolton keeps the Clones in the game for as long as possible, but the Mountaineers are too much for them down the stretch. West Virginia rolls.
West Virginia 82, Iowa State 68
