PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
If Oscar Tshiebwe can’t get it going against a double-directional school, then I’m not sure there’s any hope for him this season — which is why I’m choosing to believe we finally see the Oscar we saw glimpses of last season.
West Virginia should roll over the Huskies with little effort. If that’s not the case, then we’re in trouble.
West Virginia 84, Northeastern 61
