West Virginia – Kansas III Preview

West Virginia – Kansas III Preview

There’s a showdown between West Virginia and Kansas tonight in Kansas City. The Mountaineers hope to break through in the third round of the West Virginia – Kansas trilogy.

As Mountaineer fans are well aware, West Virginia could easily have a 2-0 lead in the series this season if it weren’t for a couple of blown leads.

The first matchup of the season happened in Morgantown. West Virginia blew a 11-point second half lead, losing by a final score of 71-66.

West Virginia is hoping the third time is a charm on a couple different levels. For one, as stated earlier, this is the third time these teams have squared off this season. Additionally, the Mountaineers have reached the Big 12 Tournament championship game for a third straight year.

The last conference tournament won was as back in 2010 in the Big East Tournament. That was a team that made the Final Four. This team has similar hopes and dreams with the senior backcourt led by Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles Jr.
