Big 12 Predictions: Can Kansas, West Virginia avoid upsets? 3/9/18

So much for feel-good feelings.

"When you play in this league", said West Virginia coach Bob Huggins, "and you play everybody twice ... we're not one of those leagues where they play the best team like once every three years". The Mountaineers haven't won a postseason conference title since 2010, when they were still members of the Big East and the games were played at Madison Square Garden.

2018 Big 12 Championship Semifinal. The Jayhawks embarrassed them in the last three meetings.

Drew said he liked Huggins' assessment that Baylor should be in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth year in a row, but "coaches tend to worry". "He had very little vision". "We've got to keep it up". Kansas State could use this win a lot more than the Jayhawks, so I will take the points. "And when he gets hot, nobody's stopping him". "We've got to meet that head on, and I think we will". There was some bleeding in his eye and he spent the rest of the game holding an ice pack on it. "But it doesn't matter now we just gotta wait and see".

A new eight-kilometer by eight-kilometer map has also been confirmed, though further details weren't provided. Activated through a radial menu, actions can be performed during matches to communicate with other players.


That can change on Sunday if Kansas continues to cruise as it did with wins over Oklahoma State and Kansas State in the first two rounds in Kansas City.

Mawien and the Wildcats made the Jayhawks work for it in the second half, though.

The reality is many fans had left after Kansas beat Kansas State in the earlier semifinal.

It was Newman that restored order. After an impressive 19-point performance in the opener against Baylor, he followed that up with 22 against Texas Tech. If we could go back and start the game right there from the eight-minute mark when we were up and play it again, I would love to do it. And by the time Lagerald Vick curled in back-to-back baskets, the lead had swelled to 71-59 and the Jayhawks were on their way toward the title game. "We have to win two more games to bring that championship trophy home".

"He's an unbelievable scorer", said WVU senior guard Jevon Carter. "We had confidence in one another that we were going to make stops and make plays".

According to Bovada, the Mountaineers are favored, but only by a single point coming into the final of the Big 12 Tournament.

In the first meeting between the two sides back on January 15, Graham and Mykhailiuk outdueled Carter and Miles 33-23 in a game wherein Miles failed to crack double digits. The Red Raiders fended Bevo off in the first half until a Mo Bamba 3 pointer cut the lead to 7 going into the second half. Culver hit a free throw with 4:15 remaining to put Tech up 57-56, its only lead of the second half. First-team all-Big 12 selection, Keenan Evans, an 83% free-throw shooter entering the game was a woeful 3-8 from the line including some huge misses down the stretch. That is a worrisome trend for a team that figures to be involved in plenty of close games in the NCAA Tournament due to the team's defensive proclivity and deliberate style of play on the offensive end of the court.
