The contest between West Virginia and the Oklahoma Sooners this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with West Virginia falling 73-62 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. West Virginia didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the 8-point advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game. Guard Miles McBride (13 points) was the top scorer for West Virginia.

Meanwhile, Iowa State received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 73-61 to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. A silver lining for Iowa State was the play of guard Rasir Bolton, who had 16 points in addition to six boards.

The losses put West Virginia at 19-10 and Iowa State at 12-17. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Mountaineers enter the matchup with 3.6 blocked shots per game on average, good for 25th best in college basketball. But Iowa State is even better: they come into the game boasting the 18th most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 4.3. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
