PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
This has trap game written all over it, but I trust Bob Huggins to have his squad in the right mindset going into it. It wouldn’t surprise me if TCU takes a lead into the half, but the Mountaineers crank up the pressure in the second half. Look for the Horned Frogs to turn the ball over a lot, giving way to a sixth straight road win for West Virginia.
Miles McBride has a star performance against the Horned Frogs, and Culver turns in yet another double-double.
West Virginia 85, TCU 73
