West Virginia Beats Itself in Loss to Texas

Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers (11-8, 1-6) played competitively throughout the game tonight, but made far too many costly mistakes (20 turnovers) and had too many missed free throws late, falling to the #7 ranked Texas Longhorns, 69-61.

The Mountaineers were led by Kedrian Johnson, who had 22 points on 6-9 from the field and 3-5 from three point range. Tre Mitchell, playing in his first game against his former team, added 12 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.

The Mountaineers will be back in action on Wednesday at 7:00PM against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, who is the only team that has not yet won a game in the Big 12 Conference.
