The Mountaineers will open up Big 12 Tournament play on Wednesday night against Texas Tech. The two sides split the season series 1-1 with both teams losing at home.

When WVU and Texas Tech collide on Wednesday night, the Red Raiders will be without a major piece to their team.

According to Pete Thamel of ESPN, Red Raiders Head Coach Mark Adams has been suspended after an inappropriate verbal exchange with a player that included a “racially insensitive” comment. Thamel shared that the news was first broken by KCBD.

ESPN’s BPI favors the Mountaineers 61.6% to 38.4%.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
