We’ve got an exciting Big 12 showdown on tap for tonight, as the Iowa State Cyclones will travel to Morgantown to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. Both of these teams can score in bunches, so we should be in for a track meet. Iowa State averages 80.6 points per game (29th in NCAA), while West Virginia scores 83.7 points per game (15th in NCAA).
Since dropping back-to-back games to Vanderbilt and West Virginia, #24 Iowa State (20-9, 12-5 Big 12) has been on fire. They’ve won seven out of their last eight games and six straight coming into tonight’s contest. Their biggest victories over this torrid stretch of play were a 92-89 road win over #3 Kansas and a 72-69 home win over #9 Baylor.
The #10 Mountaineers (23-7, 11-6 Big 12) had won three in a row before getting tripped up by #11 Baylor in their most recent game. West Virginia lost 71-62 on the road to Baylor, as the Bears were able to avenge an earlier season 89-68 loss.
Speaking of avenging a previous defeat, that’s exactly what Iowa State will look to do tonight. On January 31, 2017, West Virginia left Iowa State’s campus with an impressive 85-72 victory. It will be interesting to see how the Cyclones will fare against the Mountaineers’ smothering press defense the second time around.
