THAT WILL BE WRONG
I’ll keep it simple. West Virginia has made the Big 12 Conference tournament championship game in three of the last four seasons. They also haven’t lost back-to-back games all season, and they’re not going to start today.
The Mountaineers get a little revenge for last Saturday, and Bob Huggins gets his 900th win.
West Virginia 79, Oklahoma State 70
