Why Oklahoma State Will Win
The Cowboys want to get the momentum back going into the Big 12 Tournament.
They weren’t bad in the 81-70 loss at Baylor, but before that, they found their groove with five straight wins including two wins over Oklahoma and a thriller over Texas Tech – at least, it went to overtime.

What’s Going To Happen
The Mountaineers will win on the free throw line. Oklahoma State is great on the line, but West Virginia is even better. It’ll be a fun game with several big runs, the home side will come up with that one extra rebound and a few extra free throws.
