Coming off of an electric late-game win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders, WVU will jump right into the SEC/Big 12 Challenge this Saturday.


They will be taking on the Florida Gators (9-4) in Morgantown with a 2 p.m. scheduled tip-off and a national ESPN audience. As with every game, ESPN’s Basketball Power Index¬†included a “matchup predictor” for this matchup, and it is heavily in favor of the Mountaineers over the Gators.


Currently, ESPN’s BPI is giving WVU a 63.3% chance to knock off the Gators this weekend in Morgantown. Being that West Virginia is the 11th-ranked team in the nation and Florida is coming in unranked, this should not come as a surprise to any.


The two sides last met on December 4, 2018 in Morgantown. The Gators went home with a 66-56 win over West Virginia.
