It’s been four years since Kansas walked into WVU Coliseum and left with a victory and the Jayhawks, who have won 18 consecutive games after dropping the season opener back in November, find themselves in a great position to end their three-game road losing streak against WVU.
Once again, a key to the game figures to be whether KU can handle West Virginia’s fullcourt press. The Jayhawks committed 20 turnovers in a 81-71 victory over West Virginia in the Big 12 championship title game on March 12 at the Sprint Center and had 15 in a 75-65 victory over the Mountaineers last season at Allen Fieldhouse. That adds up to 57 turnovers in three games a year ago to West Virginia’s 41.
“You're going to turn it over against West Virginia,” said Self, whose Kansas teams have averaged 16 turnovers per game in the last nine meetings with the Mountaineers, six wins and three losses. “We talk about that, but they can't be live ball turnovers. You'd rather throw it out of bounds so your defense can get set rather than having numbers coming back at you.”
