    I've been worried that this could be a tough game for us. Now, I'm watching WVU coming apart at the seams in Norman. Could the Mountaineers be packing it in?

    In conference play, the Mountaineers have not won a game in which their opponent has scored more than 64. ISU gets to that magic number plus a few and wins 73-65.

    ISU shares the rock 19 times for an 18 point win in front of a record 4,578 crowd.

    Im mixed on this. I agree with what you're saying here, the only reason it was close was WVU started just hitting ridiculous shots.

    However, our road vs home performance has been wildly different against most conference teams this year. Im not sure you can take any home performance as an indicator of how we'll handle them on the road.

    ISU is still averaging about 74 points per game on the road in conference play. The only thing that scares me with this ISU team is close games going down to the wire, and I'm hoping ISU holds a comfortable 10-15 point lead for the last 30 minutes or so of this game.

    A squeaker that ISU will win by 3. Just in time for the end of the regular season, we'll see this team show mental toughness and the ability to close out games under pressure.

    I hope.......

    I like you're thinking and I hope you're right.

    I just hope our team doesn't think their already in the Tourney, so they come out and play sloppy. That's what we don't want to happen.

    WVU 74


    WVU will score more than normal (10 pts above their avg) due to it being at home, senior night and let's face it, with the exception of last night ISU plays very little defense. Clones go at them hard from the start and keep pushing till the fat lady sings. Roll into Kansas City with some good momentum and a hunger for more.

    I think we win very easily. WVU has nothing to play for. Their season is over for all practical purposes. Senior night, but really one senior of note (the turkish dude)

    Win #21. People still complain that we're a bad road team and don't have enough wins.

    I predict CycloneErik will jump up and down on his couch at some point during the game, preferably induced by a huge block from Booker.

    I agree with this. WVU has absolutely nothing to play for, no NCAA, no NIT. They've packed it in for the year. A win here will make for a lot less nervous Selection Sunday. ISU going away by 20+.

    WVU will be a tough game count on it. I hope we win.
