Today, the West Virginia Mountaineers (14-9, 3-7 Big 12) travel to Stillwater, Oklahoma looking for the regular season sweep of the Oklahoma State Cowboys (11-12, 4-7 Big 12).
The first meeting between these two squads this season took place all the way back on January 11th. In front of a Tuesday afternoon crowd in Morgantown, the Mountaineers were able to conquer the Cowboys by a final score of 70-60.
On Tuesday night, West Virginia finally snapped their long seven-game losing streak in a home contest against the Iowa State Cyclones, 79-63. Taz Sherman, who returned after suffering a concussion against the Baylor Bears, scored 16 points and tallied 8 rebounds while seeing the floor for 31 minutes. If Bob Huggins’ squad want to put together a small winning streak here late in the season, Sherman’s presence will be of the utmost importance.
Oklahoma State, on the other hand, has struggled just as much if not more than West Virginia this season. Currently sitting with an 11-12 record, the Cowboys have dropped six of their last seven games, and will be looking to right the ship in a winnable game for both squads.
The game is scheduled to broadcast on ESPN2. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m.
