Oklahoma @ West Virginia

Current Records: Oklahoma 12-7; West Virginia 13-5

What to Know

The West Virginia Mountaineers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Oklahoma Sooners and are hoping to record their first win since March 13 of 2019. The Mountaineers and Oklahoma will face off in a Big 12 battle at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at WVU Coliseum. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

West Virginia ended up a good deal behind the Texas Tech Red Raiders when they played on Saturday, losing 78-65. Guard Taz Sherman (21 points) was the top scorer for West Virginia.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Oklahoma and the Baylor Bears on Saturday was not particularly close, with Oklahoma falling 65-51. Guard Elijah Harkless wasn't much of a difference maker for the Sooners; Harkless finished with 12 points on 5-for-14 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Mountaineers are expected to win a tight contest. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past three games.

West Virginia is now 13-5 while Oklahoma sits at 12-7. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: West Virginia enters the contest with 16.4 takeaways on average, good for 28th best in college basketball. Less enviably, the Sooners are stumbling into the contest with the 24th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 15.1 on average.
