College basketball picks, schedule: Predictions for Texas vs. West Virginia and more Top 25 games
Eight teams ranked in the AP Top 25 poll lost last Saturday and more chaos could be coming to the college basketball
scene this Saturday with thirteen ranked teams on the road. With an increasing urgency from programs
across the country to improve their résumés with Selection Sunday looming next month,
this is when things get good. Buckle up.
In the Big 12, league-leading and fifth-ranked Texas
welcomes red-hot West Virginia to town with No. 11 Iowa State, No. 12 Kansas State, No. 9 Kansas and No. 14
Baylor all lurking within one game of the Longhorns in the regular-season race. With K-State, Baylor and Kansas all
on the road, the best conference in the sport (and the most entertaining conference race)
may finally give us some separation.
