Iowa State has been one of the nation's top scoring teams all season, and it appears unlikely that visiting West Virginia will be able to slow the 17th-ranked Cyclones on Wednesday. Iowa State began the week leading the nation in assists (18.7) and ranking sixth in points (83.6) while scoring at least 70 in all 26 games. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, have allowed at least 70 points to 12 of their last 13 opponents and have yielded 84.4 points over their last five games. "We had a week," vented West Virginia coach Bob Huggins to reporters after his team's 88-75 home loss to Baylor on Saturday. "They've all got iPads with all the breakdowns of the people they're going to guard. I'm not sure what they did ... but they sure as hell didn't watch the tape." The Mountaineers have lost three of their last four games, but the one victory was a stunning 102-77 rout of the Cyclones back on Feb. 10. "It was pretty much, start to finish, just a poor effort on our end," said Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg, whose team had not suffered a loss that bad in more than three years.TV: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN3ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (15-12, 7-7 Big 12): Remi Debo scored a career-high 20 points in the first meeting and was 6-of-8 on 3-pointers as West Virginia finished 13-of-22 from long range.
