What to Know
The West Virginia Mountaineers are 10-3 against the TCU Horned Frogs since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Monday. West Virginia and TCU will face off in a Big 12 battle at 8 p.m. ET at Ed & Rae Schollmaier Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
This past Saturday, the Mountaineers lost to the Kansas Jayhawks at home by a decisive 71-58 margin. Guard Sean McNeil (18 points) and guard Taz Sherman (16 points) were the top scorers for West Virginia.
Meanwhile, TCU came up short against the Baylor Bears this past Saturday, falling 72-62. A silver lining for TCU was the play of guard Micah Peavy, who had 16 points along with six rebounds.
West Virginia is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.
The losses put the Mountaineers at 14-12 and the Horned Frogs at 16-8. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: West Virginia comes into the game boasting the 30th most takeaways per game in college basketball at 15.6. Less enviably, TCU is 33rd worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 14.5 on average.
