Why Kansas State Will Win
Break up the 2021 Kansas State Wildcat basketball team.
It can’t score, gives it up too often, can’t rebound, can’t shoot from the outside, and can’t seem to win a Big 12 basketball game after starting 1-0 in the conference, and then …
At TCU – win. Oklahoma – win.
The defense hasn’t been all that bad throughout the rough season, but all of a sudden it ramped things up a whole other level. The Horned Frogs, Sooners, and Kansas couldn’t hit a thing from three against this D.
There’s a problem, though …
Why West Virginia Will Win
Kansas State really can’t score.
There’s a reason it’s 5-0 in the last 18 games when it holds teams to under 59 points, and 0-13 when it doesn’t.
West Virginia hasn’t scored fewer than 62 points all year, averages 78 points per game, and even when it was held down by the K-State defense back in late January, it still won 69-47.
The Mountaineers dropped a double-overtime game to Oklahoma two weeks ago, but that’s been if for the problems in February. The offense is good, the rebounding is better, and it’s not going to take all that much of a scoring punch to put this away at home.
What’s Going To Happen
Kansas State has given the effort all season long without the results to show for it. It’ll keep this from getting out of hand – that’s what this defense does – but West Virginia dominate on the boards and go on one good scoring spurt.
