THE ENEMY

Where are they from? Clemson, South Carolina

Series History: West Virginia and Marquette are meeting for the sixth time in all-time series play. The Mountaineers own a 4-1 series lead in series play that began in 1952. The last meeting took place in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, an 84-76 WVU win in Tampa, Florida.

Record: 4-0

Record in 2020-21: 13-14 (8-11 Big East)

Head Coach: Brad Brownwell (12th season)

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Rutgers at Clemson IndyStar-USA TODAY Sports



PROBABLE STARTING LINEUP:

West Virginia Mountaineers: Jalen Bridges, Isaiah Cottrell, Taz Sherman, Sean McNeil and Kedarian Johnson

Clemson Tigers: Al-Amir Dawes, Nick Honor, Hunter Tyson, David Collins and PJ Hall



PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG

I expect this one to be another close game for the Mountaineers, especially if they shoot anywhere near as poor as they did in the second half of Friday’s game against Marquette (27.3%). If Kedrian Johnson can stay out of foul trouble, I think we’ll be fine in the end.

West Virginia 73, Clemson 68
