West Virginia (#22) vs Oklahoma Match Preview

Both West Virginia and Oklahoma had strong finishes to their regular season while boosting their NCAA Tournament resumes. Sixth-seeded West Virginia aims for a third straight win when it takes on the third-seeded Sooners - who won three of their final four - in a Thursday night quarterfinal matchup at the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, Mo.

The Mountaineers, who lost to Oklahoma twice during a recent 1-6 slump, knocked off Iowa State last week and then No. 5 Baylor 76-64 in the finale of the regular season Saturday. "We played with a lot more enthusiasm. We had a lot more bounce in our step," West Virginia coach Bob Huggins told reporters. "Sometimes you put your head down, it's easier to put it down than to get it back up. We finally got it back up. We played a lot harder than we had been playing." The Sooners rallied from 19 points down in the second half to steal a 78-76 win at TCU on Saturday, as Austin Reaves capped a 41-point effort - the most by a Big 12 player this season - with the game-winning jumper in the final second, and he knows it'll be a challenge to top the Mountaineers a third time. "It's going to be hard," Reaves told the media. "But if we do what we do, stick to our game plan, listen to the coaches, we'll be good."

Oklahoma vs West Virginia (#22)

ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (21-10): Sophomore forward Emmitt Matthews Jr. broke out for a season-high 18 points in the upset of Baylor while freshman forward Oscar Tshiebwe chipped in 16 points and 12 rebounds. Tshiebwe leads a balanced attack with 11.2 points per contest while chipping in 9.3 rebounds - second in the conference. Freshman guard Miles McBride has emerged of late, averaging 14 points over his last three games and tying his season high with four steals in Saturday's win.

ABOUT OKLAHOMA (19-12):
The Sooners haven't won a conference tournament game since 2016 but feel as if they have the right mix for a lengthy run this time around. "This is the furthest I've ever been," senior forward and All-Big 12 First Team selection Kristian Doolittle told reporters, referencing first-round exits in his first three seasons before earning a bye this year. "Having the first-day bye gives us more time to rest and things like that." Doolittle leads Oklahoma in scoring (15.8), rebounding (8.9) and steals (1.3).
