West Virginia vs Kentucky Free pick : Kentucky -4
West Virginia Mountaineers survived vs. Washington despite losing the services of PG Darryl Bryant for the remainder of the season. They will have a much more difficult task in front of them today. Joe Mazzulla took over at the point, and his grade was very low. The Mountaineers made 23 turnovers and appeared lost at the offensive end. Mazzulla finished with 3 points on 1-8 shooting, 4 assists and 4 turnovers. These kinds of numbers may have been enough vs. Washington, but won be enough vs. Kentucky. The Wildcats are athletic, and talented, and their youth is playing like seasoned veterans. The Wildcats are playing at a high level and covering all three tournament games with an average winning margin of 25.3 points per game. I don’t think a healthy Mountaineers team could stay in this one, let alone one which lost their playmaker. I’ll go with Kentucky here.
