The Jayhawks sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 71-69 win over the Oklahoma Sooners this past Saturday. The overall outcome was to be expected, but Oklahoma made it more of a matchup than the oddsmakers had predicted. Kansas’ forward Jalen Wilson was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 22 points along with nine boards.
Meanwhile, the West Virginia Mountaineers typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Oklahoma State proved too difficult a challenge. Oklahoma State blew past West Virginia 81-58. Oklahoma State’s forward Moussa Cisse looked sharp as he posted a double-double on 18 points and ten rebounds.
This next game looks promising for the Jayhawks, who are favored by a full 10.5 points. Now might not be the best time to take Kansas against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
Kansas is now 20-4 while Oklahoma State sits at 12-12.
