For the second time this season, Texas basketball (15-8, 4-6 Big 12) and the West Virginia Mountaineers (8-14, 3-6 Big 12) will square off on the hardwood at the Moody Center on Feb. 10. This will be the final meeting between Texas and West Virginia as Big 12 foes.

This matchup between the Longhorns and Mountaineers is a chance for head coach Rodney Terry's squad to avenge their close 76-73 loss to West Virginia in Morgantown earlier this year.

Texas is also looking to get back on track after dropping three of its last four in the Big 12. It looked like Texas had turned a corner with a convincing 11-point road win in Fort Worth over the No. 25 TCU Horned Frogs on Feb. 3.

But Texas got off to a sluggish first-half start in a 70-65 loss to the No. 14 Iowa State Cyclones on Feb. 6. Texas has now lost four of five Big 12 home games this season.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game time as Texas hosts West Virginia at the Moody Center in Austin on Feb. 10.

Betting odds for Texas basketball vs. West Virginia

Texas is a 12.5-point favorite against West Virginia on Feb. 10, and the Longhorns are favored in the moneyline (-820) over the Mountaineers (+550), per FanDuel. The over/under is 146.5 points.

West Virginia is the No. 134 ranked team in adjusted efficiency in Division I, per Kenpom. Texas, meanwhile, ranks 30th in the nation in adjusted efficiency.

Kenpom gives Texas an 88 percent chance of beating West Virginia and projects the final score of this game to be 79-66 in favor of the Longhorns.

After getting off to a bad start this season in the wake of the departure of longtime former head coach Bob Huggins, West Virginia has shown more signs of starting to turn things around recently. Interim head coach Josh Eilert has led West Virginia to home wins over three likely NCAA Tournament teams in Morgantown in Big 12 play this season.

West Virginia's best win this season was a six-point stunner of an upset at WVU Coliseum on Jan. 20 over the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks. The Mountaineers also beat a good Cincinnati Bearcats squad by four poitns in Morgantown a couple of weeks ago.

The return of super senior center and former Syracuse transfer Jesse Edwards from a wrist injury has sparked this recent uptick in play for the Mountaineers on the court in the last few weeks. Edwards has added some size and major production to the West Virginia frontcourt.

Edwards has averaged over 20 points per game, nine rebounds, and three blocks in West Virginia's last two games.

The 6-foot-11 Edwards will test Texas's frontcourt in this game. Senior Texas big man Dylan Disu has been on a tear in Big 12 play. Terry and the Longhorns need another big outing from Disu, who is averaging over 16 points per game this season and over 18 points per game in Big 12 play.

What Texas really needs is secondary scoring support from someone other than Disu and senior guard Max Abmas. Disu and Abmas are combining for over 36 points per game in conference play, which is more than half of Texas's scoring per game.

Texas also needs a solid effort on the glass if it wants to take care of business comfortably against West Virginia. The Longhorns are 11-1 this season when they win the battle on the boards. When Texas loses or ties in the rebounding margin, it is 4-7.

Texas has been outrebounded in three of the last four games, all of which resulted in defeats.

Final score prediction: Texas-82, West Virginia-68
