West Virginia at Kansas matchup preview

The Mountaineers’ position on the NCAA Tournament bubble has wobbled over the last several weeks as they have struggled to maintain consistency in Big 12 play. After a damaging loss on Saturday to Texas Tech, WVU bounced back to thrash Oklahoma State at home behind big games from Tre Mitchell and Erik Stevenson.

WVU could solidify its trip to March with this trip to Allen Fieldhouse, a venue in which the Mountaineers have never won.

The Jayhawks put their five-game win streak on the line as they vie for the top seed in the Big 12 Conference. With a strong finish, they could even sneak into the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, but they would need some real help outside of the Big 12 for that to occur.
