West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia Mountaineers sit at the fourth spot in the Big 12 conference standings with a record of 18-6. On the road, this team has lost five of their eight games and this team is coming from a two-game skid as well. The Mountaineers will rely heavily on their hustle players inside with Tshiebwe and Culver providing almost double-double performances every night. But they would need their bench to step up if they want this game to come close to the Bears.
Players to watch: O. Tshiebwe F (24 GP 23.4 MIN 11.6 PTS 9.1 REB 0.3 AST 0.8 STL 1.2 BLK 1.9 TO 58 FG% 68.5 FT% 0 3PT%), D. Culver F (24 GP 24.4 MIN 10.6 PTS 8.8 REB 1.9 AST 0.9 STL 0.6 BLK 2.3 TO 45 FG% 57.3 FT% 0 3PT%), M. McBride G (24 GP 22.1 MIN 9.6 PTS 2.3 REB 1.8 AST 1 STL 0.5 BLK 1.3 TO 41.6 FG% 75 FT% 35.6 3PT%).
The Bears are coming in this game and are looking invincible at the Ferrell Center where they are undefeated in 12 contests. Owning the biggest winning streak right now with 21 wins, this team is poised to make a good run in March Madness and are right now the top-seeded team in the country. Butler has been playing well for this team averaging 15 points while Teague does 14.4 points per night. But the real strength of the Bears is their bench players who are willing to step up at the biggest stages. Mitchell is an interesting prospect that gives the team the extra scoring per night and if he gets going, then it will automatically be over for the Mountaineers for this game.
Players to watch: J. Butler G (23 GP 29.4 MIN 15 PTS 2.6 REB 3 AST 1.5 STL 0.2 BLK 2.4 TO 41.1 FG% 82.3 FT% 36.4 3PT%), M. Teague G (23 GP 32.8 MIN 14.4 PTS 5 REB 2 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 1.3 TO 40.7 FG% 83.2 FT% 35.7 3PT%), D. Mitchell G (23 GP 31.2 MIN 9.8 PTS 2.8 REB 3.4 AST 1.4 STL 0.4 BLK 2.1 TO 41.3 FG% 67.7 FT% 32.9 3PT%).
