Kansas completes epic comeback at West Virginia

Down 16 points, Kansas gets its first win in Morgantown since 2013, 71-66. Wow! Kansas had a huge second half comeback to defeat West Virginia in Morgantown for the first time since 2013, 71-66.

Kansas Jayhawks Basketball at West Virginia Preview

Kansas takes its show on the road to Morgantown, and I think I can probably copy and paste my preview from the last couple of seasons: West Virginia will force some turnovers, grab some (or a ton) of offensive rebounds, commit some fouls, and get away with twice as many.
