The Mountaineers travel to Lawrence, KS, to take on the Jayhawks in a game that is basically a must-win for Kansas. West Virginia is making the return trip to Lawrence after defeating the Jayhawks by a 74-63 count in snowy Morgantown back on January 12.
West Virginia is coming off a win against Baylor in Morgantown, while Kansas enters today's contest off a 75-56 road victory over TCU that was probably a bit more impressive than the score indicates.
Kansas has a 36-game home winning streak going, and has won three straight overall for the first time since early January. West Virginia is only 4-3 in it's last seven games, but still sits alone at the top of the conference 10 games in.
Here are the essentials:
No. 6 Kansas: 19-4, 7-3
No. 10 West Virginia: 19-4, 8-2
Line: Kansas opened as a 7-point favorite.
