What better way to open ESPN’s 2018 Big Monday schedule than with a battle of top-10 Big 12 teams? Kansas hasn’t won at West Virginia in any of its past four trips out to Morgantown. The No. 6 Mountaineers (15-2 overall, 4-1 Big 12), coming off a loss at Texas Tech, hope to send the No. 10 Jayhawks (14-3, 4-1) back to Lawrence with a fifth straight loss at WVU.
I predicted a 78-70 WVU final score. What's everyone else's prediction?
KU starters: Marcus Garrett, Devonte Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk, Malik Newman and Udoka Azubuike.
WVU starters: Jevon Carter, Daxter Miles, Lamont West, Wesley Harris and Sagaba Konate. That answers the question if Harris would play after he was reprimanded by the Big 12 today.
Impressive that the early Big Monday game (a Duke win) finished before the late game. Feel like that never happens.
Daxter Miles opens with a 3.
And KU can't inbound the ball. Brutal, brutal start.
That sold out WVU crowd is certainly fired up for this game.
KU timeout in the first 80 seconds.
KU with 2 turnovers and 2 missed shots (both blocked).
Lagerald Vick already back in for Garrett. And he hits the first shot with a 3.
Mountaineers are shooting open shots, but struggling from the 3-point line.
