The #11 Iowa State Cyclones will go against the West Virginia Mountaineers in NCAAB action in WVU Coliseum, WV, on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, at 7:00 PM ET.


Just two seasons passed since Iowa State finished with a 2-22 record in 2020–21 and lost all 18 Big 12 games that year.


The Cyclones made significant progress the previous season, going 20-12 (7-11 Big 12), before losing in the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.


By dominating 13 of their first 15 matches, including their first four conference games, they were able to build on their previous success.


Four of the following six games saw Iowa State lose, but on Saturday it was able to turn things around by defeating then-No. 8 Kansas 68-53.


In that matchup, the Cyclones were a 1.5-point underdog and won by the spread for the first time in five meetings.


This year, they had a respectable offensive performance, being 97th out of 363 Division I teams in effective field goal percentage.


With just 66.0% of its free-throw tries being made, Iowa State had a dismal free-throw shooting performance. Although it saw some turnover problems as well, its offensive rebounding rate is among the top 30. 


  • The Cyclones are 1-4 ATS in their previous 5 meetings. 
  • Iowa State is 14-6 SU in their previous 20 meetings. 
  • The Iowa State Cyclones are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games with West Virginia.

The Mountaineers were able to exact revenge for their one-point setback to Oklahoma in the middle of January. James Okonkwo recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Kedrian Johnson scored 16 points.


In KenPom’s adjusted efficiency rankings, West Virginia is placed No. 16 for its exceptional offensive performance. The Mountaineers’ effective field goal percentage is 52.3 and they are in the top 30 teams in offensive rebounding.

#11 Iowa State Cyclones vs West Virginia Mountaineers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the West Virginia Mountaineers.


The differences between this Iowa State club at home and on the road this season are not fully taken into account by the oddsmakers.


Due to their home-court advantage, the Cyclones are a divisive team in general, but this season that trend intensified.


The most important factor to pay attention to in this game is that they are just 1-6 in their previous seven road contests. In its last seven home games versus Iowa State, West Virginia went 7-0 overall and 11-3.


The Cyclones had trouble with turnovers and poor free throw shooting, so it is not particularly shocking that they struggled on the road. The West Virginia Mountaineers will win to a predicted score of 71-66
