West Virginia Mountaineers at Texas Longhorns No. 20 West Virginia falls at Texas
Noah Ferguson | 26 February, 2020, 20:32

Texas came out to an early 19-point lead by halftime, scoring 42 of their 70 points in the first half. West Virginia drubbed Texas in the first head-to-head meeting of the season, 97-59, January 20. Unfortunately, the Mountaineers will be traveling to Texas for this one, where they're 3-7 on the year.

DID YOU KNOW: The West Virginia defense has allowed only 61.5 points per game to opponents, which is the 13th-best mark in the country.

The Mountaineers will lean heavily on forwards Oscar Tshiebwe (11.1 ppg, 9.3 rpg) and Derek Culver (10.4 ppg, 8.7 rpg) to dominate the Longhorns near the basket on both ends of the court. West Virginia ranks fifth in defensive efficiency while the Longhorns rank 282nd in offensive efficiency.

We've already discussed West Virginia's recent road slippage and Texas has won three of its last four games against West Virginia, including two consecutive home wins.

Baylor also cemented the top seed in the conference tournament and won its 56th straight regular-season game in the conference. On the road, the Mountaineers average just 64 points per game. The offense ranks 324th in points per game, 223rd in field-goal percentage and 333rd in rebounds per game. The Longhorns shoot 42.9 percent from the floor and rebound 32.1 times per game. The highest AP ranking Texas has had in Smart's five seasons as coach was No. 17 last season.

The Longhorns rank 37th in blocks per game (4.5) while the Mountaineers rank 109th in blocks allowed per game (3.3). West Virginia is 3-7 straight up and 3-7 against the spread on the road this season.

Longhorns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than.400.

The combined Over/Under record of the two teams is 19-35 for the season, plus, the majority of West Virginia's Unders were on the road and the majority of Texas' Unders were at home. Ramey had four points in 31 minutes while Sims tallied five fouls in 13 minutes for Texas.
