WVU Takes Out Its Frustrations On Baylor


This was a lead West Virginia wasn’t going to give away.

Having blown its four double-digit lead en route to a disheartening loss at Kansas on Saturday, the Mountaineers took out their frustration on Baylor Tuesday night in Waco with a 71-60 victory.

WVU forged a 40-18 lead by halftime, and took that advantage to 28 points in the second half. Baylor did battle back to cut that margin to 12, but West Virginia wasn’t about to let this one slip away. A four-point play by Daxter Miles stemmed a Mountaineer drought of nearly five minutes and took the wind out of the Ferrell Center crowd. WVU cruised the rest of the way to record its 20th victory over the season against eight losses. Baylor, which had won five straight games heading into Tuesday’s contest, is now 17-10 overall.

WVU sophomore center Sagaba Konate tied WVU’s single-game block record with nine, equaling D’or Fischer’s mark 15 years ago. Konate also had 10 points and 10 rebounds, finishing just short of the first Mountaineer triple-double since Jerome Anderson in 1975.

West Virginia will be back in action Saturday night, when it hosts Iowa State (13-13). Tipoff is 6 p.m.

    IMO the pass by Beetle was the best of the year. He put it thru 2 defenders to a spot that Esa was not yet to. The ball left Beetle’s hand while Esa was still in back of the defender going down court. It bounced up right in Esa’s hands for an easy dunk.

    Nice pickup. I also liked his pass from the key to the right corner in the 1H. Think these were emblematic of the good job WVU did passing the ball for about 36 minutes.

    That one second half stretch, there was either no passing and three that were tipped\deflected by BU, and those were all just poor passes/decisions.
