The Kansas Jayhawks will take on the West Virginia Mountaineers in the title game of the Big 12 Conference. The top seeded Jayhawks are likely a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with their 26-7 record and 13-5 Big 12 record. Kansas has downed both Oklahoma State and Kansas State so far in the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City.
The Mountaineers took down Texas Tech on Friday to get to the Big 12 title game for the third straight season. The Mountaineers led by double digits in both games they played Kansas this season, losing in both games. The Mountaineers are 24-9 on the season. West Virginia is a 1.5 point favorite over West Virginia in this Big 12 title game on Saturday.
Jayhawks in Search of Top Seed
Kansas has won 14 straight Big 12 titles with head coach Bill Self. The Jayhawks have scored over 82 points per game, and their defense allowed just shy of 72 per game. Kansas ranked 13th in all of College Basketball in assists, with 17 per game. Devonte Graham led the team with 7.3 per game.
Graham was also the top scorer for Kansas with more than 17 per game. Big man Udoka Azubiuke missed the conference tournament, and is questionable to return for the NCAA Tournament. The big man scored 13.7 points per game, and ripped down 7.1 rebounds per game.
Mountaineers led by Carter
Senior Jevon Carter has been terrific for the West Virginia Mountaineers. The guard is scoring 17 points per game, and dishing out nearly 7 assists per game. He plays in nearly 36 minutes per game for the Mountaineers as well. Daxter Miles Jr is second best on the team with 12.4 points per game, and is second of five guys scoring double digits per game.
The Mountaineers last loss came in the regular season finale at Texas. Since then, the Mountaineers have scored 72 points per game, and allowed 64 in wins over Baylor and the Red Raiders. On the season, West Virginia is scoring 80.3 per game. The Mountaineers are heading to the NCAA Tournament for the 29th time in school history, and seeking their 3rd Final Four.
Kansas Sweeps West Virginia
The Kansas Jayhawks are without their top scoring big man, but that’s not a problem. The Jayhawks are going to win their third of the season against the Mountaineers and be champions once again in the Big 12 conference. Kansas can shoot lights out, and if West Virginia leaves them open out of the pressure defense, the Jayhawks will make them pay. Look for Kansas to control this game from start to finish.
