West Virginia 97, Texas 59

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Oscar Tshiebwe had 13 points and 11 rebounds, Derek Culver scored 13 points, No. 14 West Virginia jumped to a big early lead and coasted to a 97-59 victory over Texas.

Jermaine Haley added 12 points and Jordan McCabe scored 10 for the Mountaineers (15-3, 4-2 Big 12).

Texas (12-6, 2-4 Big 12) has dropped two straight.

The Longhorns were out of this one pretty early.

Texas got outhustled for rebounds and loose balls and suffered through two long scoring droughts in the first half. Matt Coleman, Kamaka Hepa, Jericho Sims and Royce Hamm picked up three first-half fouls apiece.

Only Sims eventually fouled out, but the Mountaineers used a lopsided advantage in free throws during a 20-0 run that gave them a 43-15 lead 2 minutes before halftime.

Coach Bob Huggins had chided his players for not heeding his warning about locking down Kansas State, which dropped 84 points against one of the nation's top defenses on Saturday.

West Virginia listened to him against Texas. The Longhorns were held to 36% shooting for the game.

Jase Febres led Texas with 18 points, and Coleman added 15.
