Mountaineers take on Kentucky with NCAA title already secured

West Virginia hoists the 2015 NCAA Championship trophy in Fairbanks, Alaska

Fairbanks, Alaska - The University of West Virginia takes on the University of Kentucky Wildcats this evening at the Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio, tonight. Despite the bravado of freshman guard Daxter Miles and his prediction of the Wildcats ending the season this evening at 36-1, experts say there's a better chance of finding life on Mars. But even if that happens (the Kentucky win not the life on Mars), West Virginia would leave the arena ahead of Kentucky in the 2015 NCAA title race.

How's that? Because they won the NCAA Rifle Championships less than two weeks ago at the University of Alaska's Patty Center.
