On Monday Night, the Big 12 Conference will command attention as two evenly matched teams square off one last time before the season is over. The No. 23 Iowa State Cyclones will compete against the West Virginia Mountaineers. It will undoubtedly get close in this game.
Despite finishing in the bottom half of the Big 12 standings, the West Virginia Mountaineers have earned a chance to play in the NCAA tournament. The Mountaineers have been able to keep games intriguing and even pull off a few upsets in what has been the hardest league in college basketball this year, most notably against Auburn, TCU, and this same Iowa State club. They will aim to defeat the Cyclones in all three games of the season series.
The Mountaineers should be proud of themselves for playing No. 3 Kansas in Lawrence until the very last shot, despite the fact that they ultimately lost. They gave it their all, out rebounding the Jayhawks 34–26. WVU was able to stay in the game by scoring on second chances, with many of those coming on the attacking end. The defenders tonight will try to dig their heels in, so they’ll have to do the same.
Despite being in the Big 12’s midsection, Iowa State is currently ranked in the top 25. The Cyclones were ranked as high as No. 11 in the nation and have been a dangerous team all season. But, they’d prefer to turn things around because they’ve lost their last three games, including the most recent one against Oklahoma. They’ll make an effort to recover and keep from falling behind the Mountaineers.
Although being in a good spot for the tournament, Iowa State would still like to be better because their rating has been dropping over the past few weeks. They’ll be more motivated than ever to get a win after losing their last two games by double digits. They shot a terrible 26% from three and 31% from the field in their most recent game. In order to beat the spread, they will need to keep their turnover totals low.
