LAWRENCE, Kan. — NCAA college basketball Top 25 fixtures on Monday night see No. 3 Kansas looking to avenge its defeat to West Virginia last month when it entertains the ninth-ranked Mountaineers in a rematch at Allen Fieldhouse.
When these two teams met last time on Jan. 24 at WVU Coliseum, West Virginia handed Kansas its first defeat in conference play with an 85-69 victory.
Come Monday night, the Jayhawks (22-3, 10-2 Big 12) will aim to return the favour, as they also seek to bounce back from a rare home defeat after losing to Iowa State the last time they played at home.
Last week Kansas beat Kansas State and Texas Tech for its fourth win in five games, but Bill Self’s men are expected to face stiff competition from a West Virginia (20-5, 8-4 Big 12) side that has won two straight and five in the last six overall.
Jevon Carter (11.8 ppg) leads three Mountaineers players scoring in double-digits this season, with Esa Ahmad (11.6 ppg) and Nathan Adrian (10.8 ppg) the two others in that bracket.
Kansas is led by senior guard Frank Mason III, who is scoring 20.1 points per game this term.
Freshman Josh Jackson is averaging 16.6 points and 7.0 rebounds, while Devonte’ Graham (13.0 ppg) and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10.7 ppg) are also scoring in double figures.
Other AP Top 25 ranked teams in action on Monday night are No. 2 and defending national champion Villanova, which will take on DePaul on the road, No. 4 Baylor, which is at Texas Tech and No. 8 Louisville, which travels to take on Syracuse.
