Kansas Jayhawks Basketball Predictions: West Virginia Mountaineers

The crew gets together to tell you what is going to happen in today's game.

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma State at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks came up with a huge road win on Monday, with nearly a week to get ready for their revenge game against the West Virginia Mountaineers. Will they use the extra time to polish up their play, or do they come out flat once again?

David: There’s been a lot of positive talk about this team coming together and having a good locker room atmosphere lately, but this feels like a game where they could come up flat. They have a week off, and it’s gotta be hard to get excited to play a West Virginia team this bad, even if they did lose to them last month. Fortunately, without Ahmad and Johnson, the Mountaineers aren’t good enough to take advantage of a sluggish start. Kansas 74, West Virginia 64

dnoll5: I can’t believe that Kansas lost to this team earlier. They are not losing to them again. There will be a Teahan sighting in this one. Kansas 82, West Virginia 62.

Kyle_Davis21: It’s hard to find a way that Kansas blows this at home without a historically bad shooting day and WVU somehow hitting 12+ 3’s. The lack of motivation that could stem from WVU being so bad should be at least slightly offset by the loss in Morgantown and that KU is still chasing KSU in the conference standings. Kansas 76, West Virginia 60

Fizzle406: It’s hard not to be confident about this one. The team is starting to fire on as many cylinders as the can. West Virginia looks terrible too. This might be the one game where we can blow them out. Let’s enjoy it. Kansas 77, WVU 68

Mike.Plank: I see that David is back to his pessimistic self. I really don’t think there’s any reason to fret about the game today. I don’t think the Jayhawks come out flat at all, and now that West Virginia is shorthanded as well, look for KU to really put it on them. The Mountaineers are getting 30-balled today. Kansas 85, West Virginia 52.

Andy Mitts: If Kansas lets this one stay competitive, then they have no business thinking about a conference title this year. Kansas 89, West Virginia 67
