In a newly released episode of the Final Fourcast Podcast, WVU forward Gabe Osabuohien joined hosts John Flowers and Kevin Jones to talk about the upcoming game against Kansas.

Osabuohien and the Mountaineers will travel to Lawrence, KS, on Friday, to prepare for a road game against the Jayhawks for Saturday afternoon. With the upcoming gauntlet of Kansas, Baylor and Texas Tech in three consecutive games, Osabuohien picked the hardest game in his opinion.

“I would say probably Kansas,” Osabuohien said. “Just because coach Huggs has never won there, we already know the refs are not going to be on our side. It’s a tough environment.”

Of course for Osabuohien, he’d rather play in an hostile environment than with a home crowd behind his back, he tells Flowers and Jones.

Kansas is currently No. 9 in the AP poll, with a 13-2 record, led by senior guard Ochai Agbaji. Agbaji is averaging 20.6 points, on 53 percent shooting from the field and 48 percent from three. Osabuohien motions that if West Virginia can contain Agbaji, they might be able to outlast them depth-wise and have a shot in the game.

Flowers and Jones mention that Bob Huggins has never won a game at Kansas, as West Virginia has an all-time record of 0-9 in Allen Fieldhouse. Osabuohien wants to say that he was on the first WVU team to win at Kansas.

“I would be able to say that I was on the first WVU team to win at Kansas,” Osabuohien said.
