The setup

Iowa State basketball comes in with two overall losses (11-2) and have won their lone game in Big 12 play. West Virginia has just one loss on the season (14-1). They could easily be undefeated if they didn’t blow a significant lead to LSU at home. The Mountaineers are 2-0 in conference action with wins over TCU and Texas Tech on the road (by the same 78-67 score interestingly enough).

What’s on the line in this top-17 matchup according to the AP poll? The winner could arguably be the best squad in the Big 12.

Betting update

After West Virginia opened as a 5-point favorite, the spread is shrinking. Offshore sportsbooks have the Cyclones listed as either a 4 or 4.5-point underdog as of late Friday night.

Network information

This is Iowa State basketball’s fourth contest on ESPN2 this season. For what it’s worth, the Cyclones are 3-0 when being shown on The Deuce.

The network is available on nearly everybody’s basic cable or satellite package.

  • DirecTV ch. 209
  • Dish Network ch. 144
  • AT&T U-verse ch. 1606 (or 606)
  • Verizon FiOS ch. 574 (or 74)
  • Mediacom (Ames/Nevada) ch. 831 (HD), 36 (SD), and 55-13 (SD).

By the way, this announcer combination of Boog Sciambi and Big 12 expert Fran Fraschilla is probably my favorite duo. I love Boog (especially on the baseball call) and, of course, everybody loves Fran.
