What channel is Oklahoma vs. West Virginia on today? Time, TV schedule for NCAA Men’s College Basketball game

Oklahoma returns home Wednesday after a two-game road trip that ended in two defeats to take on a West Virginia team that just upset Texas. The Sooners had won 13 of their first 14 games of the year before the losing streak, while the Mountaineers ended their three-game losing streak with a big win on Saturday.

Now both teams head into their fourth Big 12 clash with a 1-2 conference record. Either could move up the rankings with a win, although Oklahoma holds the season-long advantage with a 13-3 record. West Virginia sits at 6-10.

Javian McCollum, a junior transfer from Siena, leads the Sooners with 15 points and 3.9 assists per game. He scored 17 points in each of Oklahoma’s past two games. The Mountaineers are led by another transfer as well – Raequan Battle. He joined West Virginia after two years at Washington and then two years at Montana State and leads the Mountaineers with 20.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.

West Virginia’s stout defense played a big role in the team’s upset win over Texas, with the Mountaineers forcing 22 turnovers. That mentality should carry over to this game against the Sooners, who turn the ball over almost 13 times for per game.

Oklahoma has the better all-around team, though. The Sooners score 80.1 points per game and allow just 65.2, while the Mountaineers score just 67.9 points per game and allow 71.7.

The Sooners outrank the Mountaineers on KenPom’s advanced efficiency metrics, too, with a No. 20 ranking compared with West Virginia’s No. 136 ranking.
