Mountaineers Dominate K-State
The Mountaineers broke out in a big way Saturday, trouncing Kansas State at the WVU Coliseum, 80-47.
The victory broke a three-game winless streak for West Virginia, which had also lost five of its previous six. WVU improved to 17-6 on the season and 6-4 in Big 12 action. The Wildcats, which had won five of seven coming to Morgantown with the only two losses coming to Kansas, fell to 16-7 overall and 5-5 in the league.
The Mountaineers, many of whom had been battling cases of the flu this week, looked anything but sick Saturday afternoon. They pulled out to a 39-30 lead at halftime and then completely dominated the second half en route to the blowout victory.
WVU doesn’t have time to enjoy this win, though. It will be back in action Monday night when it faces Oklahoma in Norman.
