Johni Broome and Wendell Greene Jr, each scored 16 points and combined for eight rebounds in the loss to the Aggies. Auburn did not do a good job of taking care of the ball, as it lost possession 14 times.

Betting on the West Virginia Mountaineers (ODDS)
Record: 12-8 Overall/2-6 Conference
West West Virginia just defeated the Texas Tech Red Raiders on the road last Wednesday to give the Mountaineers their second win in three games. Before beating the Red Raiders, the Mountaineers lost to the Texas Longhorns at home, 69-61. West West Virginia shot itself in the foot nearly nonstop in that meeting against Texas Tech because of turnovers, just like Auburn in its last game. The Mountaineers committed a total of 19 turnovers. The Mountaineers, however, grabbed 19 offensive rebounds to make up for those errors, but still couldn’t prevent losing to Texas Tech. In any case, look for West West Virginia to continue that strong rebounding. The Mountaineers are second in the conference with a 34.7 ORB%. They also take a draw plenty of fouls and make lots of trips to the free-throw line.
