There really isn’t a whole heck of a lot to like about the Mountaineers. They just aren’t all that good, they have no talented stars, and amazingly, there isn’t a player on the team averaging more than 9.3 points per game. However, what this team can do at times is defend, and that might be just what the doctor ordered on Saturday afternoon against the Jayhawks. Kansas just had to play a back and forth, up and down game against Iowa State, and teams after they’re done with the Cyclones have a tough time going against the rest of the slower paced Big XII. On top of that, there really can’t be a ton of motivation right now for Kansas. The team is in great shape for a No. 1 seed to the NCAA Tournament, and though that would be blown if any of these last three games are lost, even getting a C+ game from the Jayhawks is probably going to be good enough to win all of these efforts. A C+ isn’t going to get the job done in terms of beating the spread in this game, though. We expect to see a slow, plodding, low scoring game. Kansas will win, but it won’t be able to beat the college basketball odds.
