PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
After watching West Virginia going through the motions and showing no energy in the second half of Thursday’s game against TCU, I was little hesitant making this pick for the Mountaineers. That was until news broke this morning that Cade Cunningham will not be playing in today’s game, leaving the Cowboys without their two best players.
The Mountaineers should have no trouble with the remainder of this Okalahoma State team, and Bob Huggins should be able to walk off the court today with 900 career wins
West Virginia 79, Oklahoma State 70
