AUSTIN, Texas – West Virginia came storming back from a 19-point second-half deficit to pull out an 84-82 victory over 12th-ranked Texas Saturday in Austin.

With the win, No. 13 WVU improved to 15-6 overall and 8-4 in the Big 12 Conference.

Having now completed the first leg of its three-game Lone Star State road swing, the Mountaineers move on to face TCU Tuesday night in Ft. Worth and then will meet No. 2 Baylor on Thursday in Waco.


West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins said his halftime comments were unprintable, but he might want a record of them after his team rallied from 19 points down to knock off Texas.


West Virginia sophomore guard Deuce McBride had a team-high 17 points in leading the Mountaineers to an 84-82 comeback victory over Texas in Austin.
