WVU basketball: Mountaineers' game against No. 8 Kansas is sold out
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University ticket manager Debby Travinski announced Wednesday that the Mountaineers' men's basketball game against Kansas this Saturday is sold out.
West Virginia (16-13, 8-8 Big 12) plays tonight at Oklahoma (9 p.m., ESPNU). It is the Mountaineers' final regular season road game. WVU sits alone in sixth place in the 10-team Big 12 Conference. The Mountaineers are vying for a berth in the NCAA or NIT tournaments after missing the postseason last year.
Kansas is ranked No. 8 in this week's The Associated Press Top 25 poll. The Mountaineers haven't defeated a team ranked that high since Feb. 19, 2011 when they knocked off No. 8 Notre Dame, 72-58, at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown.
WVU and Kansas will tip at noon and will be televised nationally by ESPN.
