West Virginia Mountaineers

Despite a forgettable February, pundits see a West Virginia triumph against the Cyclones on Tuesday. West Virginia Mountaineers are due to get back on track and their match against Iowa is seen to be it. It all depends on how players like Oscar Tshiebwe respond to the challenge. Miles McBride needs to replicate his performance against the Sooners if they want to get back on track.

Players to watch: O. Tshiebwe F (29 GP 23.4 MIN 11.1 PTS 9.2 REB 0.4 AST 0.8 STL 1.1 BLK 1.8 TO 55.5 FG% 68.5 FT% 0 3PT%), D.

Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa State is not exactly playing great basketball either as of late. They bowed to one of the worst teams in the Big 12 last weekend, mainly because of their turnovers. This is something they cannot afford against the Mountaineers who want to get back to their winning ways. Tasked to lead the Cyclones is Rasir Bolton and Michael Jacobson. Both had good outings in that loss to Oklahoma State.

Players to watch: T. Haliburton G (22 GP 36.7 MIN 15.2 PTS 5.9 REB 6.5 AST 2.5 STL 0.7 BLK 2.8 TO 50.4 FG% 82.2 FT% 41.9 3PT%), R. Bolton G (29 GP 31 MIN 14.4 PTS 3.4 REB 2.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.1 BLK 2.8 TO 40.2 FG% 84.3 FT% 33.6 3PT%), S. Young F (29 GP 20.4 MIN 9.9 PTS 3.9 REB 0.7 AST 0.6 STL 0.9 BLK 1.1 TO 53.4 FG% 80.2 FT% 25 3PT%).
