The No. 20 Texas Longhorns will spend the second-to-last Saturday of the regular season in Morgantown, WV, where they’ll have an afternoon date with the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Texas (20-8, 9-6 Big 12) has traded wins with losses for the last two and half weeks and last came out on the winning end this past Wednesday in a 75-66 home victory over TCU. The Longhorns found themselves down by 10 at one point in the second half before turning up late, outscoring the Horned Frogs 29-16 in the final 10 minutes of action. Timmy Allen had a strong performance of 17 points and seven rebounds. Andrew Jones and Marcus Carr combined for 40 points.

West Virginia (14-14, 3-12 Big 12) has continuously cratered in league play and dropped its fifth straight game on Wednesday in an 84-81 loss to Iowa State. The Mountaineers held at 12-point lead in the second half but that evaporated as the Cyclones stormed back. Izaiah Brockington ultimately pulled ISU ahead with a clutch jumper with 22 seconds left on the clock. Both Malik Curry and Gabe Osabuohien had 19 points each off the bench.

The Pick

Under 132.5

Texas has a distinct advantage on the defensive end and are effective at forcing turnovers. They’ll muck things up for this struggling Mountaineer team to limit their point total, making the under a good play here.
