The Kansas State WIldcats and West Virginia Mountaineers face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at WVU Coliseum.
The Kansas State WIldcats come into this game with a 7-18 record overall, but they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Oklahoma, the defense was elite giving up only 57 points and that led to the victory. Kansas State on the season is averaging 61.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 71.3 points per game. Kansas State is shooting 41.3 percent from the field and 30 percent from behind the point line.

West Virginia on the season is averaging 77.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 72.1 points per game. At home the offense is even better averaging 79 points per game and in this game it’s going to be about the offense running up the score early and to try to make Kansas State keep up.

Kansas State has looked good each of the last two games, but I think this is when their luck runs out. West Virginia’s offense is going to be the difference as the MOuntaineers come away with a cover of the spread.
