TCU Basketball vs. West Virginia Game Thread: 3 Things to Watch

Let's watch TCU vs. West Virginia

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

If you haven't already, read Felts' game preview to get completely up to speed on the game. Here are three takeaways from his preview that you should keep an eye on today.

1. How does TCU's defense slow down WVU's offense?

As a team, the Mountaineers are one of the best in the country when it comes to total offense. Through 24 games, West Virginia is averaging 80.3 points per game, a mark that ranks 33rd in the nation.

2. Can TCU improve on their first scoring outing against WVU?

The Frogs put up a pretty good fight against the ‘Eers in the first meeting, scoring 87 points of their own, the most the team has ever scored in a Big 12 Conference game. It's entirely possible that TCU will have to improve upon that effort if they are to pick up their first-ever win over the Mountaineers in program history this morning.

3. Will Karviar Shepherd and Malique Trent be able to fight through their injuries and contribute?

On the injury front, Karviar Shepherd will likely return to action today after missing Monday's game against Oklahoma State with a lingering back injury. Malique Trent is expected to be back at full strength after suffering a sprained wrist last weekend.
