After narrowly escaping with a victory over the Texas Longhorns, the Kansas Jayhawks will try to have a better performance in their upcoming matchup against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Kansas has been the class of the Big 12 for years, but its struggles on the road against West Virginia are well documented. The Jayhawks are 2-4 in their past six games at the WVU Coliseum.
It’s been a rather hectic week for the Jayhawks, as the program is trying to have Silvio De Sousa reinstated. His name appeared in the FBI’s investigation into college hoops during the offseason.
Regardless of all the controversy surrounding this team, the Jayhawks should have their way with the Mountaineers.
Dedric Lawson is turning into an automatic double-double, Lagerald Vick is shooting the basketball well, and Devon Dotson is emerging as the third scoring option for Kansas.
West Virginia is still adjusting to life without Sagaba Konate, who is recovering from an injury to his knee.
The Mountaineers are going through a rebuilding year, but Bill Self wants to make sure his players remained focus on the task ahead of them.
