... sometimes this ol' barn feels like a long lost friend. It's another Saturday...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!

3:00 PM CT Saturday on ESPN our Boys in Blue host Huggie Bear's WVU Mountaineers in venerable Allen Fieldhouse. Jon Sciambi will do the play-by-play, while Fran Fraschila provides the analysis. No word on who will be the courtside reporter (Holly? Hopefully?).

Our Jayhawks look to make amends for their late game collapse in Morgantown earlier this year and try to stay within striking distance of KSU. They are shooting for an AY2018-19 record of 20-6 (9-4), while the 10-14 (2-9) Mountaineers limp into The Phog with hope to rack up just their 3rd win of the conference season. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor favors KU 93% to 7%, with KU favored by 14 points.

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics and ESPN
• Huggins dismissed 20 points and 10 rebounds per game in senior forward Esa Ahmad and junior guard Wesley Harris for what a school news release termed a "violation of athletic department policies."
• WVU G James "Beetle" Bolden (12.2PPG and 82% at the free throw line) is expected to miss the game due to injury.
• Marcus Garrett is projected to miss this game as he recovers from his high ankle sprain.
• Kansas’ 18-game home court winning streak (AFH 17, Sprint Center 1) is tops in the Big 12 and 7th-longest active streak nationally
• KU leads the series 10-5 (AFH 6-0)
• WVU is vying to become the 2nd team to sweep Kansas in the Bill Self era.
• In 105 regular-season Big 12 home & home series, KU has 71 sweeps, 33 splits and ome opponent sweep, by OSU in 2017-18.
• F Dedric Lawson has posted a league-leading 16 double-doubles this season, which ranks fifth nationally.
• D. Law leads the Big 12 in scoring at 19.4 ppg and rebounding at 10.6 rpg.
• In 45 minutes at TCU, Devon Dotson had his first double-double, with career highs in points (25) and rebounds (10).
• Dotson was named the CBS Sports/USBWA National Freshman of the Week on Feb. 12.
