PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
The Mountaineers bounce back after losing a close one to No. 1 ranked Gonzaga in what will hopefully be a classic, physical Big East basketball game. I don’t know that Georgetown is as competitive under Patrick Ewing as they were under John Thompson (Jr. and III), but we’re still going to have some fun.
West Virginia pulls away late.
West Virginia 78, Georgetown 66
