West Virginia men’s basketball returns to the court on Monday night, after they were blown out on Saturday in their loss to the Longhorns.

The Mountaineers are losers of four of their last five games, while TCU has lost two straight, including a road loss to Iowa State over the weekend.

Our staff gives their predictions for the game below:

Wesley Shoemaker: Even with the small amount of success this team has had this season, Saturday is a real gut punch. Now, how does this team respond. I think they will be competitive, but for me it’s still hard to pick this team to win on the road. I think the best thing for them is this game falls on a Monday and not on a Wednesday. A quick turnaround is probably the best recipe for success after Saturday’s nightmare. TCU is hungry and firmly in the NCAA Tournament picture, so how do the Mountaineers deal with that. Will RaeQuan Battle be able to get going Monday? If you’re WVU you hope he does as he’s averaged 8.2 points per game over WVU’s last five, on 14 for 45 shooting (31 percent). This team needs Battle, but they also just need to figure things out on the road. I think TCU wins, but it’s close throughout.

Patrick Reneau: After the performance WVU put on against Texas, morale is at a new low for this team. Staying in Texas for another game, but this time against TCU, a team wvu is yet to see this year. I have hopes that this one goes differently than their game on Saturday performance wise, but I don’t expect a different result. This is a wvu team who is nearly unidentifiable when they are on the road. Whatever they are successful at, they cannot be successful at that on the road for reasons that are unknown. I’d like to think someone is able to step up and lead them to a win over TCU, but I don’t see in happening.

Ryan Roddy: After a debilitating loss to Texas on Saturday, West Virginia travels to Ft.Worth Monday to take on TCU. The Mountaineers still have yet to win a game away from the WVU Coliseum and their road struggles are just becoming more evident. Jesse Edwards has been one of the few bright spots for West Virginia since returning from injury but simply cannot do it all by himself. The Horned Frogs are coming off back-to-back losses, but have had some great stretches in conference play. I believe TCU should no problem handling the Mountaineers.
